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 Beloit College, Bard College at Simon's Rock, Hampshire College, Reed College, Bard College, Pitzer College, Sarah Lawrence College, Bennington College, Oberlin College, Shimer College and New College of Florida – offer experimental curricula.
