W&L’s size, combined with extensive resources and commitment to innovative teaching and interdisciplinary learning, means our students experience remarkable academic and co-curricular opportunities from day one.
We were pioneers in the introduction of practical subjects alongside the classical education. We introduced the concept of journalism education and added courses in business, engineering and law. More recent additions include poverty studies and entrepreneurship.
Our long-standing emphasis on character and values is the basis for a center of ethics. Students need to be versed in all of these areas in order to confront and solve the problems of today. And tomorrow.
