North Carolina Wesleyan, a private college affiliated with the United Methodist Church, prepares students for professional advancement and life-long learning. The school offers 30 undergraduate programs and 31 minor programs leading to the bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degrees.
The liberal arts and sciences are the foundation of Wesleyans curriculum for all undergraduate degree programs. North Carolina Wesleyan College is a place where students realize their potential as critically engaged and informed citizens contributing to their personal success as well as the well-being of their communities and of society as a whole. Faculty and staff guide students as they develop a set of skills that are broadly useful, fully transferable, and applicable to any challenge or career. The skills cultivated by our faculty and built into our curriculum include: critical thinking and reflection, communication, collaboration, and information technology.
The College provides degree programs and other educational opportunities for residential, commuting, and adult students. The traditional program in Rocky Mount for residential and commuting students emphasizes small classes and individual attention. It also encourages student development through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The non-traditional Adult Studies program is designed for students who wish to strengthen their academic background, enhance their professional knowledge and skills, and advance their careers. It is tailored to the learning styles and schedules of working adults. Both programs provide student support services to ensure academic success.
The College has a special commitment to the Rocky Mount area and to eastern North Carolina. Through individual faculty, staff, and alumni activity, and through its educational and cultural programs, the College promotes the development of the region. The Wesleyan community includes students from diverse cultural and racial backgrounds. The College works to create an environment in which students, faculty, and staff come together in a dynamic learning community.
