We Refuse to Squeeze Open Minds into a Closed Curriculum

Wesleyan University is dedicated to providing a bold, rigorous education in the liberal arts that values putting ideas into practice. With 45 majors, 32 minors, and 3 certificate programs to choose from, Wesleyan students get the flexibility to explore their many academic interests and passions, take chances, question the status quo, and flourish in an academic culture that prizes collaboration over competition.


We want a campus full of interesting, mindful students; our open curriculum encourages each individual to discover their full potential.

Academic Journey

Just as our students are different in their own ways — with unique backgrounds, personalities, and ambitions — so are their academic journeys. Wesleyan encourages students to take advantage of various resources and academic options to forge their own distinct path to graduation and beyond.

Colleges and Academic Centers

Wesleyan’s unique selection of distinctive programs, including various interdisciplinary colleges and academic program centers, inspires students to engage in critical thought across multiple perspectives and to harness their creative energy to effect real-world change.


Wesleyan’s faculty of more than 400 intellectually dynamic teacher-scholars embrace teaching and collaboration with students. Our professors have the freedom to channel their vision into creative classes and areas of study that are always evolving. They inspire students to explore, question, and create.
