About Wellesley Career Education

The Wellesley Career Education model illuminates the strengths of the liberal arts education and encourages active participation of the full College ecosystem in order to support every Wellesley woman from the moment she arrives on-campus through her alumnae years. Connections and communities form the heart of our model. 

Our students proactively engage in the process of exploring the intersection between self and society, engaging and testing their curiosities, and forming meaningful connections within career communities that cover a broad array of industries and career fields.
