An internship at Wells can pretty much be whatever you would like it to be. Along the way, don't be surprised if you learn to communicate more effectively, think more strategically and behave more professionally. And you won't have to wait until you're a junior or senior to partake in an internship at Wells. Many of our students start thinking about what they'd like to try almost as soon as they arrive on campus.


You're smart. And you're not afraid to show it. 

Don't be surprised to find yourself surrounded by a strong community of like-minded individuals. Fellow students who are curious. Who care about your character. Who believe that learning is as fundamental, vital and natural as breathing. Together, you'll learn in the classroom and also outside of it -- in the big classroom known as life. We offer a wide range of hands-on learning experiences aimed at developing you as a "whole person," including internships, research opportunities, independent study, and study-abroad programs. If you can dream it, we'll help you do it.

Chances are, you'll find your own voice here.

And you won't hesitate to use it. In fact, the Princeton Review ranks Wells among the best schools in nation for encouraging class discussion. You may even discover a passion and intensity you didn't even know you had. You'll never get lost in a lecture hall. Our classes are small—13 students is the norm. There's one professor for every nine students. They know your name. They know where you came from. And more importantly they'll help you get where you want to go.

Who are you?

Some people know early on, some figure it out along the way. Either way, Wells can help. We believe life is about trying new things and college is a way to fuel the journey. We do offer many different paths. And Wells faculty will do all they can to help you explore them. In theory and in practice. In the classroom and outside of it as well. Here's a look at the majors we offer. If you don't see exactly what you're looking for, remember that we are able to personalize your Wells experience to your individual interests and needs. It's also good to know that your course of study in any of these fields extends way beyond the walls of the traditional classroom. By graduation, you will likely have completed at least one internship, studied abroad, and completed a senior project.
