He earned his Bachelor of Arts from Cornell in 1951 and his Doctorate from Yale in 1955. After graduating from Yale, Bloom remained there as a teacher, and was made Sterling Professor of Humanities in 1983.

In 2010 he became a founding patron of Ralston College, a new institution in Savannah, Georgia, that focuses on primary texts.
