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.

Professor Kari Weil

Director, College of Letters

Apply for the CEAS Major!

Dear Class of 2021,

I am writing to let you know that WesPortal is now open for those of you who would like to declare a major in the College of East Asian Studies.  You can find out more about our major here. The Wesvising video is here if you prefer video format.

The major application process is very easy:

1) Fill out this online application form.

2) Go onto WesPortal and declare a CEAS major.

If you are thinking about majoring in CEAS, I would like to encourage you to declare the major early.  Once you’ve declared, you’ll get on our mailing list, which lets you know about all the cool events we have going on this semester.  It will also connect you with a CEAS advisor and give you priority when pre-registering for CEAS classes next year.

I hope that many of you will join our wonderful CEAS community!

Thank you, Prof. Haddad

Mary Alice Haddad, Chair, College of East Asian Studies
