Explore your own major and find your own home

Wesleyan students have the opportunity to explore any of our 56 undergraduate majors, 38 minors and 4 graduate programs. They include not only focused research within your given field, but also exploration and study within various departments and courses through our general education program.

If you’re not sure what you want to study, don’t worry! Our faculty and staff are dedicated to helping you find your own academic voice, and the family you will build here will give you the chance to find the major that fits your passion.


Undergraduate Majors


Students may select a minor to complement or support their major program. The selection of an academic minor is optional.  In addition to the minors listed below, a student may design a contract minor combining related courses from more than one department. Planned on consultation with two faculty advisors and subject to Curriculum Council approval, such a contract minor should include 9-12 hours in one of the sponsoring departments and should not overlap courses in the major. Guidelines are available in the Office of the Registrar.
