Wellesley College

Academic Highlights

  • Wellesley's 1,000+ courses, 50+ majors, and 15 foreign languages help students acquire a broad knowledge of the basic fields of human inquiry and develop critical thinking, an appreciation of varied approaches, and the power to communicate effectively.

  • The student/faculty ratio is 7:1; classes are small, taught by talented professors dedicated to their students’ success.

  • Students can cross-register one course per semester at MIT, Babson, Olin, and Brandeis; more than 50% of students study abroad (financial aid goes with you).

  • More than 90% of seniors complete at least one internship; hundreds of research opportunities are available, often one-on-one with a professor.

  • Wellesley’s Madeleine Korbel Albright Institute for Global Affairs educates women for positions of leadership and fosters an innovative approach to problem solving.
