Build on our history of excellence in the liberal arts and support strategic new academic pathways and connections.
Wooster promises a broad education that prepares students for lives of purpose, and a deeply mentored education, through which every student creates something new. Students value independent study and intellectual breadth, but also seek well-articulated ways to explore a wider range of interdisciplinary interests, and to connect applied subjects and professional exploration to an excellent liberal arts education.
- Create academically robust and experiential ways for students to explore and pursue both intellectual passions and professional aspirations.
- Develop new pathways, including majors, minors and more, that will be compelling to current and prospective students and powerful for their futures.
- Enhance first and second year academic experiences.
- Encourage and support innovative modes of Independent Study.
The Class of 2019 is eager to showcase their undergraduate research projects on Friday, April 26
All three will be available starting this fall
