Academics

At Wesleyan, students have the opportunity to work at the highest levels, discover what they love to do, and apply their knowledge in ways the world finds meaningful. While Wesleyan has no core requirements, the university has established general education expectations that are designed to encourage breadth within the student educational experience. Students select courses in consultation with advisors, creating customized itineraries of study in three intellectual spheres: the arts and humanities, the social and behavioral sciences, and the natural sciences and mathematics. During their time at Wesleyan, students also have remarkable opportunities to conduct research with professors who are leaders in their fields. Freedom, rigor, intellectual experimentation and the desire to make a positive difference in the world—that’s the Wesleyan Experience.
