Introducing the Engaged Liberal Arts!
You might not have heard this phrase before, but you’ll soon appreciate what it really means.
Wake Forest University’s model of participatory learning liberates you from the couch and zaps you through the screen. It takes you from the 14th row to the stage. It’s our version of High Definition.
When you cross borders allegedly separating academic disciplines, the only thing you have to declare is your interest. This is our custom.
Pack your curiosity and prepare to get your passport stamped.
There’s something for everybody here. Probably several somethings.
85%: Portion of the Class of 2022 declaring a second major and/or a minor or minors
50: First-Year Seminars; these offerings might bring out the seemingly obscure in all of us. Examples in Spring 2023 include Fashion and the Environment; Culture of the U.S. Military; Sports, Culture, and Geography; Gardening on Paper and in Practice; Race, Gender, and Identity in the 21st Century Scientific Community.
509: Undergraduates studying abroad in Fall 2022. That’s the third-highest total in our history. In other words, we’re back.
1,902,034: Possible combinations of major-minor declarations available to undergraduates
99%: Portion of classes with fewer than 50 students in Fall 2021
41%: Portion of the Class of 2022 taking at least one class at Wake Downtown, the chiefly (but not exclusively) biomedical satellite campus located 13 minutes by shuttle bus from the Reynolda Campus
