Go beyond the ordinary: students build a unique experience through diverse majors and minors, partnerships and cross-registration with nearby colleges, pre-professional advising, and our core curriculum. All majors contain cross-disciplinary elements and explore some of the most exciting areas of current research. As a part of the in-depth study of the major, students are introduced to the ways in which different areas of human inquiry are related.
Wells' 21 majors, including specialized concentrations and in addition to self-designed individualized major options, ground a student's education in one discipline while sharing space with other fields and areas of expertise.
