Dear Transfer Students in the Wesleyan Class of 2020,


The College of Social Studies (CSS) is a rigorous, interdisciplinary major focusing on Government, History, Economics, and Social Theory. Founded in 1959, the CSS is reading and writing intensive, encouraging intellectual independence with weekly essays, small group tutorials, and a vibrant intellectual and social environment.


If you are an incoming Sophomore transfer student and are interested in joining the CSS, we expect to have spaces open up over the summer.


The application form will be posted on the CSS website at, on Monday, June 5th, and will be due by email on Monday, June 12th.


You can learn more about the CSS by looking at our webpage at

Best wishes.
