What is the Wheaton Edge?

The Wheaton Edge is a dynamic college experience—combining guaranteed access to internship funding with a highly personalized education in the liberal arts and sciences, innovative and interdisciplinary curriculum, and abundant opportunities to engage in and shape the campus community—that prepares students for success after graduation.

The Wheaton Edge is our graduates’ edge in a competitive global market. It helps them find a career path, understand how skills, practice and passion intersect, and develop a network of friends and colleagues who understand their strengths and help them build on them.

The Wheaton Edge is a foundation, a springboard from which students go out into the world confident they can continue learning, solve problems, lead, make a difference, make an impact, create something new, share their ideas and collaborate with all kinds of people who do all kinds of work.

The Wheaton Edge is what the liberal arts and sciences are meant to be: fuel for growth.
