Education with Purpose and Passion

Keene State by the numbers

Nearly a quarter of Keene State students do some part of their study away from Keene, through Honors global engagement trips, faculty-led classes with international components, service learning, and semester or summer study away programs.

Your education – as a scholar, as a citizen – is our goal. At Keene State, academic excellence and civic responsibility go hand in hand. Working as an academic community, we accomplish this through:

  • Small classes and access to faculty from the start
  • A 100-year tradition of hands-on learning and service to others
  • Thorough preparation for careers and a purposeful life
  • Encouraging students to discern, to distill, to synthesize

This is the power of a liberal arts education. We call it wisdom to make a difference. More about Education with Purpose and Passion

Integrative Studies Program

We believe in the value of a liberal arts education—that the best way we can prepare you for the future is to teach you to think critically and creatively, to communicate effectively, and to understand the connections between different branches of knowledge. The Integrative Studies Program (ISP) is the catalyst for developing these crucial skills.
