About Wilson College
Wilson College is a top liberal arts college with rigorous academic programs and so much more.
A rigorous academic program with incredible access to professors has been a hallmark of Wilson College since its founding in 1869. A collaborative environment, a 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio and professors who are dedicated to mentoring students—both in and out of the classroom—create an educational experience that is focused on the individual student.
Wilson connects career-oriented programs with a broad-based liberal arts education that teaches students to think critically and communicate with confidence—essential skills for career success. This approach is evident across all of Wilson's degree programs—undergraduate, graduate and adult degree.
Rooted in more than 140 years of a forward-thinking tradition, the College has always been a leader. From a pioneering residential program for single mothers with children and the establishment of the Center for Sustainable Living 20 years ago to having a USDA certified-organic farm to leading the way on affordability in higher education with a first-of-its-kind student debt buyback program, Wilson continues to be a trendsetter.
Student experiences inside and outside the classroom are influenced by the Wilson Honor Principle, which fosters qualities of personal responsibility and integrity. College is a transformative time and Wilson is committed to educating the whole student: mind, body and spirit.
