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 ranked Wells 17th in the 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.
