North Carolina Wesleyan College offers majors in traditional liberal arts disciplines (such as English and Religious Studies), and also majors in professional studies (i.e., Criminal Justice and Business Administration). A solid liberal arts foundation supports any major you choose and will prepare you for enlightened civic engagement, lifelong learning, and critical thinking skills needed for today’s workplace. Choosing a minor or a second major further enhances your education and can be accomplished within a four-year plan. Small classes with faculty who care about your progress and work with you one-on-one are an important part of your Wesleyan education.

Learning extends outside the classroom, too, with opportunities for service learning, co-curricular activities in discipline-specific clubs advised by full-time faculty members, and learning communities. We also offer the opportunity to study abroad in London, England and in the Tuscany region of Italy. The North Carolina Wesleyan College academic experience provides you with opportunities to learn, serve, and grow.

Academic Programs

North Carolina Wesleyan offers 28 undergraduate programs leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. Our programs prepare you to enter the world with confidence and well-rounded skills that involve critical thinking, analytical reasoning, information literacy, ethical decision making and more.

Divisions and Departments

Our academic divisions are organized into four divisions by subject type:

Honors Program

The Taylor-Crocker Honors Program offers a select group of high-achieving students the opportunity to add variety and depth to their college experience at North Carolina Wesleyan. Students in the Honors Program take a series of unique courses throughout their four years and work with a faculty mentor to complete an honors project in an interdisciplinary area of interest.

Study Abroad Programs

North Carolina Wesleyan College has partnered with Hollins University and Meredith College to provide students with a comprehensive semester-long or summer study abroad program in London. The program is ideal for students in humanities, business, or social science majors who wish to gain internship experience or academic coursework credit while experiencing one of Europe’s major metropolitan areas.


Your classes are taught by professors who love to teach and work individually with students. Over 85% of our faculty members hold the highest degree in their respective field. Learn more about our dedicated faculty in the Faculty Directory.
