Experience the liberal arts — the OWU way. Academics at Ohio Wesleyan starts with our 175-year commitment to the depth, breadth, and rigor of traditional liberal arts — made more powerful today with The OWU Connection. You will learn to think critically and creatively, solve complex problems, communicate your ideas, apply your knowledge in real-world settings, and thrive in an environment rich with diverse cultures and backgrounds.

Our Depth

You will work in small classes with faculty members who are outstanding scholars and researchers — and passionate teachers. They will push you, challenge you, inspire you, and work with you on your own research and creative projects.

Our Breadth

You will enjoy the wide range of academic fields and majors that you might see at a large university. Just look at the list below of our 70+ majors. And we encourage and work with students to combine majors to broaden their skills and opportunities with a second major. More than one-fourth of our students graduate with multiple majors, one of the highest percentages in the nation.

The OWU Connection

And academics at OWU means something more. It’s The OWU Connection. It’s our commitment to help you find your passion and build your pathway to a fulfilling career. You will learn to think big by connecting ideas in different disciplines. You will go global, with opportunities to immerse yourself in different cultures. And you will get real experience, connecting theory and practice, connecting the classroom and real world.
