Discover the Power of a Small, Liberal Arts College at Linfield

Linfield College is a highly ranked, comprehensive undergraduate four-year college with its main campus located just an hour outside of Portland, Oregon. Our degree and certificate programs are rooted in traditional liberal arts with practical education through collaborative, service and experiential learning opportunities.

An old English proverb says, "Great oaks from little acorns grow." When you think about it, an acorn makes the perfect visual representation for what we believe in – namely, transforming our students into well-rounded, “whole” people. It also fits nicely with our slogan: "The power of a small college." Linfield College is small. We’ve created a unique, close-knit environment where students from different backgrounds and disciplines are encouraged to learn. Grow. Play. Explore. Linfield is a supportive, close-knit community where people collectively help one another succeed.
