Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts is a public, 4-year institution established in the city of North Adams. Beyond their traditional course offerings, MCLA also features a variety of additional academic opportunities, including travel courses, internships, community-based learning, undergraduate research, and an Honors Program. Students enrolling in STEM fields of study have the opportunity to learn in MCLA’s Feigenbaum Center for Science and Innovation, which is home to a vast collection of state-of-the-art resources as well as outdoor instruction areas and a rooftop classroom.
Despite its lackluster buildings, MCLA is a really great community and a great college to get a degree from. The campus is made up of old buildings with new ideas and the two of them together create a great atmosphere that lets students have all of the great perks of today's society with the old buildings of North Adams that give our campus character. It is a well-lived on campus, it really feels like a home away from home and is a great place to meet new people, study, and get a degree.

MCLA is a great school to go to if you want to be recognized as an individual and not just a number. The faculty and staff are dedicated to each student's success in and out of the classroom. You don't go anywhere on campus without seeing a smile; it's a close-knit community.
