The psychology department at Reed is phenomenal. I may be biased, but it's really wonderful. Professors have a wide range of expertise, but all come together in a way that makes the department feel like a family. I've loved every psych class I've taken and wouldn't want anything else.

Every major at Reed is intense and would be an honors major elsewhere. All students take a qualifying exam in their major in the junior year and write a thesis in the senior year.

The four year course plan for all hard science majors (Physics, Chemistry, and Biology) are extremely packed. To be able to graduate in four years (especially for a Physics major) you need to know as a Freshman you want to be a science major. Also, there is not a lot of room to take other classes that interest you :(

Too One Note and Not Enough Options – I get that a small school is limited in what it can offer but with that in mind they should have tried to make sure that each of the 7 professors in the poli sci department has a completely different focus. Instead they have 4 professors who focus just on American politics, one IR professor and 3 political philosophy professors. So basically if you want to study anything other than the US or philosophy (so basically about 90% of the poli sci field) that's not really an option here unless you get lucky with the random visiting comparative politics professor they bring in each year.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
