- Yale University
Yale is best defined by the word and. Yale is a research university and a liberal arts college. Its scholars are driven by innovation and more than 300 years of tradition. Yale students excel in the arts, humanities, social sciences, sciences, and engineering at the highest levels. Students of all backgrounds, beliefs, identities, and interests join a global community that values a multifaceted approach to undergraduate education.
All Yale undergraduates enroll in a single liberal arts college with 2,000 courses and 80 majors. Students are randomly assigned to Residential Colleges: close-knit communities housed in stunning buildings centered on courtyards. Each is a microcosm of Yale’s diverse student body, while preserving the intimacy of a small college.
Yale is committed to affordability and meets 100% of financial need – for all students, without loans. Yale’s policies mean that no student will ever need to decline a place in the class for financial reasons.
At Wesleyan, your major doesn’t limit you. It liberates you. In our open curriculum, students get the flexibility to explore their many academic interests and passions, take chances, and embrace failure as a necessary part of success. Bringing a creative approach to every endeavor becomes second nature. And bridging disciplines and forging partnerships is a constant theme, as students learn to take initiative, question the status quo, and flourish in an academic culture that prizes collaboration over competition.
With our distinctive scholar-teacher culture, creative programming, and commitment to interdisciplinary learning, Wesleyan challenges students to explore new ideas and change the world. Our graduates go on to lead and innovate in a wide variety of industries, including government, business, entertainment, and science.
The students who thrive at Wesleyan have—or aspire to—a unique fearlessness. They have the courage and audacity to want to shape the world in which we live.
