Investing in women is an investment in our future.

A women's college education creates leaders, communicators, and persuaders who speak up and speak out.

Graduating from a women’s college significantly increases a woman’s chances of earning a graduate degree.

Women’s college graduates succeed in entering a range of career fields and graduate programs, regardless of their undergraduate major. Research also shows that a women’s college education develops critical skills for life and career. Women’s colleges help students learn to think analytically, bring social and historical perspective to issues, work as part of a team, write and speak effectively, make sound decisions, gain entry to a career, prepare for career change or advancement, and be politically and socially aware.

Women’s college alumnae report more in-class experience with making presentations than their peers at other institutions and are more likely to gain leadership experience in student government and campus media. Research also shows that when students receive honest feedback from faculty it predicts gains in physical health, gains in drive to achieve, and higher college GPAs for female college students.

The liberal arts attract women who believe they can change the world's inequalities.

Liberal arts colleges teach students how to think for themselves, how to learn, and how to see things as a whole. A liberal arts education provides a student with general knowledge of many different subjects in order to gain a better working knowledge of the world, rather than focusing on and specializing in one specific area. This type of education can develop intellectual ability and prepare students for many fields in today’s workplace. A liberal arts background equips Wesleyan women with a unique perspective that makes them highly competitive for many professional opportunities, and quite successful at whatever they choose to do.

Society is changing. Our students are changing. The demand for career-based education is on the rise. Rhetoric would lead us to believe that the liberal arts are waning. However, research proves this assumption false. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers’ Job Outlook Survey 2016, employers are seeking traditionally labeled “soft skills” in their hires’ resumes. These include what would be considered the hallmarks of a liberal arts education: leadership, teamwork ability, communication skills, and problem solving amongst others. In fact, it isn’t until #10 that technical skills make the list. In the same survey, employers were asked what attributes influenced hiring decisions the most. Major, unsurprisingly, was the first. Second and third? Leadership positions and extracurricular involvement. Wesleyan’s four-year plan From Here to Career exists to help students create connections between what they are doing inside the classroom and outside of the classroom and then be able to articulate their unique story to employers and graduate schools. At Wesleyan, we foster a career-ready community to help our students to be poised for lifelong career success.

A Liberal Arts Education prepares you for your first job and your last job.
