Amherst is an exclusively undergraduate four-year institution[3] and enrolled 1,744 students in the fall of 2009.[2] Students choose courses from 35 major programs[4] in an unusually open curriculum.

Founded in 1821 as an attempt to relocate Williams College by its President Zephaniah Swift Moore, Amherst is the third oldest institution of higher education in Massachusetts. Amherst remained a men's college until becoming coeducational in 1975.
