College is not just about earning a degree; it’s about graduating with the knowledge and skills necessary for life-long success in the twenty-first century.
Lyon College offers over 15 majors and 21 minors in liberal arts and sciences, concentrations in communication and education, prep courses for health-related fields and pre-law, pre-engineering and pre-med programs.
Through academic support programs and a comprehensive curriculum, Lyon students are two and a half times more likely to graduate in four years than students at the typical Arkansas four-year college.
It’s not just the study-abroad opportunities and comprehensive curriculum that highlight the Lyon academic experience, however.
Ninety-three percent of Lyon College professors hold the highest degree in their field, with many earning their degrees at some of the most prestigious schools in the country. Lyon also stresses joint professor/student research activities and projects so students benefit from their professors through more than just the classroom.
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
