This is a list of liberal arts colleges in the United States. Liberal arts colleges in the United States are usually four-year colleges which lead students to a bachelor's degree, some such as Augsburg College and Point Loma Nazarene University lead students to obtaining a master's degree or doctoral degree.

Liberal arts colleges are American institutions of higher education which have traditionally emphasized interactive instruction (although research is still a component of these institutions). They are known for being residential and for having smaller enrollment, class size, and teacher-student ratios than universities. These colleges also encourage a high level of teacher-student interaction at the center of which are classes taught by full-time faculty, rather than graduate student teaching assistants who often teach classes at large research-oriented universities. The colleges may be coeducational or single-sex; private or public; and either secular or affiliated with a religious body. Some are historically black colleges. Some colleges – such as Hampshire College, Beloit College, Bard College at Simon's Rock, Pitzer College, Sarah Lawrence College, Bennington College, Oberlin College, Shimer College and New College of Florida – offer experimental curricula.
