Points of Pride

Wesleyan takes pride in its long relationship with the United Methodist Church and its role as a pioneer in women’s education. Through strong academic programs, leadership roles, and service opportunities, Wesleyan women are taking their convictions out into the world and making significant contributions in disciplines like biogenetics and molecular engineering, and serving in impoverished communities. Wesleyan women are shaping the world.


Chartered in 1836, Wesleyan became the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women. Since then, we’ve sent scores of women out into the world to do the impossible, the amazing, and the extraordinary, like the first woman to receive a Doctor of Medicine degree in Georgia and the first woman to argue a case before the Georgia Supreme Court.
