Having only finished my first year at Wellesley, I have yet to completely decided on a major; however, I am planning on majoring in biochemistry and minoring in computer science. I am looking towards a research career in the future. From what I have gathered from speaking to other science majors, the science majors do have a relatively heavier course load with the laboratory sessions in addition to the normal lecture courses. However, the professors are always available to answer questions and to offer help the students. I have taken a cell biology course and introductory chemistry course during my first year and found that I really enjoyed the class atmosphere and the material. I am looking to volunteer for a research lab the coming fall in order to gain more hand-on experience in laboratory research.

Wellesley is prestigious, and so getting in is difficult. I personally wasn't worried because my test scores and grades were above the targeted average, but I think the interview is very important. In addition, know that students and professors also read your app at Wellesley.

The CWS arranges some internships for students, but they tend to be outside the humanities. However, I still think the possibility of fully-funded internships is something many colleges don't have.

As an American Studies Major, I was thrilled that Wellesley allowed me to study a wide range of disciplines in one major. I do wish the department was more visible and more professors were advising on the major.

I adore the classes at Wellesley. You are really treated like an adult, challenged and respected in the classroom, and you can choose to study a wide range of topics. The professors are incredibly smart and approachable, and students give a lot of important feedback on courses.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
