Professional Majors

Engineering

Wesleyan offers a dual degree program in engineering collaborating with the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia; Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama; and Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. Through this cooperative engineering program, students first complete the academic requirements at Wesleyan College for approximately three academic years (earning 90 semester hours) and then apply to and attend one of the three cooperating institutions for approximately two years.

Students will receive both a Bachelor of Arts degree from Wesleyan College and a bachelor’s degree awarded by the cooperating institution.

If you plan to enroll in the dual degree engineering program, talk to one of Wesleyan’s academic advisors, Randy Heaton at rheaton@wesleyancollege.edu. For details on course requirements, see the Academic Catalogue.

 

Law

Law schools strongly recommend that you take a broad range of diverse and rigorous courses. You may choose a major from any of the liberal arts ranging from chemistry to history, political science, English, or other fields. In selecting your major, it’s a good idea to consider the type of law career you wish to pursue.

Admission to law school is based on your grade point average and score on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). The LSAT is given four times a year: June, October, December, and February. It is recommended that you take the exam in June of your junior year or October of your senior year.

If you’re planning to attend law school, you should gain advice from our Law Advisor, Dr. Tom Ellington in the history and political science department no later than the beginning of your junior year. For course descriptions, see our Academic Catalogue.


Seminary

For students planning to enter the field of professional ministry or pursue higher theological graduate work, The Association of Theological Schools suggests you take a broad range of courses in literature, history, natural sciences, social sciences, fine arts and music, languages, and religion (Christian and non-Christian).

Seminary students frequently choose to major in fields such as English, history and religion. However, any liberal arts subject is appropriate including the sciences and mathematics and the fine arts.

Seminary students at Wesleyan are encouraged to take advantage of graduate program information sessions, round-table discussions with local ministers, and internships, all of which help discern a vocation and prepare for post-graduate study. Wesleyan’s Seminary Advisor, Karan Bray can be reached via email at kbray@wesleyancollege.edu. For course descriptions, see our Academic Catalogue.
