About Hood College

March 1, 2017  |  News  |  No Comments

Hood CollegeHood College was founded in 1893 as Frederick Women’s College and was located in two adjacent buildings in Frederick, Maryland. Now, 123 years later, Hood is a thriving, co-educational liberal arts institution with a beautiful 50-acre campus just blocks from its original location in charming, historic downtown Frederick.

This year, Hood is home to about 1300 undergraduate students, hailing from 29 states and 17 countries. These students enjoy the ample opportunities that Hood has to offer, including a student-teacher ratio of 11:1 and an average class size of just 15 students.Because of the College’s proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore (less than an hour from each!), students in each of Hood’s 33 majors and 48 minors are also able to explore a wide variety of prestigious job and internship opportunities in the area.

Hood students are engaged in their community, enthralled with their classes and involved on their campus – it’s hard not to be, with more than 40 student clubs and organizations and 22 NCAA Division III athletic teams.

In addition to Hood’s wide array of undergraduate programs, the College is also home to an expanding graduate school. The graduate school at Hood College currently offers 31 programs for students pursuing their master’s degrees or post-baccalaureate certificates. The inclusion of graduate studies at Hood also allows students the opportunity to pursue one of five new bachelor’s/master’s degree programs, which can be completed in just five years.
