Wheaton College’s bold and innovative curriculum encourages students to develop a broad foundation of knowledge, consider important issues across disciplines and from many perspectives, practice putting their knowledge to work through experiential learning and internships, explore cultures beyond their own and work to understand how structures of power and inequality operate in a global world.

The Compass curriculum gives students the freedom and flexibility to create their own path to success, with personalized advising and professional mentorship. The curriculum encourages students to connect academics to career interests and builds on Wheaton’s core principles of intellectual curiosity, global citizenship, experiential learning, social justice, diversity and inclusion, and collaborative community.

Compass combines a small number of requirements with many optional pathways, allowing students to create the education that meets their needs.
