Come and talk about the major with the department chair—bring all your questions—and better assess whether this major might be right for you.  The chair will be available before and after the meeting to sign any forms (e.g., study abroad, transfer credits).  This is the last meeting of the year.

COL Applications due Mon., March 26

Dear Members of the Class 2021,                                                             

Please be aware that the deadline for applications to the COL is this Monday, March 26.

COL is a three year, interdisciplinary major for the study of European literature, history, and philosophy, from antiquity to the present.  During these three years, students participate as a cohort in a series of colloquia in which they read and discuss works together (in English), learn to think critically about texts in relation to their contexts and influences—both European and non-European—and in relation to the disciplines that shape and are shaped by those texts.  Majors also become proficient in a foreign language and study abroad in order to deepen their knowledge of another culture.  The COL, a unique college within the University, has its own library and workspace where students can attend lectures, study together, and meet informally with their professors, whose offices surround the library.

To learn more about the COL and the application process, please visit the COL website at: http://www.wesleyan.edu/col or you can be in touch with me directly at kweil@wesleyan.edu .

We look forward to hearing from you.

Director, College of Letters
