- Wesleyan is committed to academic excellence in the liberal arts, the fine arts, and professional fields of study and to close relationships among faculty and students. Wesleyan is proud of its long relationship with the United Methodist Church. We respect other traditions and remain committed to the Judeo-Christian ethic, believing that a firm grasp of enduring human values is basic to the Wesleyan way of learning, living, and service.
- Wesleyan College was the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women in 1836. And since that time, the college has introduced scores of young women into society–including the first woman to receive a Doctor of Medicine degree and the first woman to argue a case before the Georgia Supreme Court.
- Wesleyan concentrates its strengths in liberal arts education by offering one undergraduate degree: the A.B. (Artium Baccalaureate, or Bachelor of Arts). Majors and concentrations are available in more than 30 areas of study. A dual degree in engineering is offered in cooperation with the Georgia Institute of Technology, Auburn University, and Mercer University. Research and technology are integrated throughout the liberal arts curriculum. With 90 percent of faculty engaged in research in their fields, Wesleyan students often have opportunities to collaborate with their professors on these projects.
- Wesleyan is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) to award the baccalaureate degree, the Master of Education in early childhood education, and the Master of Business Administration.
