About Warren Wilson

Think deeply. Care fiercely. Work hard.

The Warren Wilson education gives you breadth with a time-honored liberal arts core and depth through our varied majors and minors. But we don’t stop there. Because like you, we believe that the best learning happens when you strike out, leave the shallows, and go deep.

So we amplify your classroom experiences through two additional graduation requirements:

*On-campus work

*Community engagement

Our Work Program sets you apart when you’re applying for jobs — you’ll already have a resume full of accomplishments. And participation in our Community Engagement Commitment adds service experience while providing you the opportunity to advocate for causes you care about.

These core experiences are integrated with experiential learning opportunities like internships, study abroad, and career preparation via our personal and holistic approach to advising.
