Wake Forest University

Wake Forest University combines the best traditions of a small liberal arts college with the resources of a large research university. Founded in 1834, the school is located in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Consistently ranked among the top 25 universities in the country, Wake Forest is committed to educating the whole person, graduating students who seek purpose-filled lives and building a community dedicated to serving humanity.

Wake Forest University offers programs in liberal arts as well as graduate and professional education. Undergraduates can choose among 37 different majors. The University’s graduate school of arts and sciences, divinity school, and nationally ranked schools of law, medicine and business enrich the intellectual environment of the campus.

A student/faculty ratio of 11:1 encourages personal interaction and intellectual collaboration between students and professors. Most classes have less than 25 students and are taught by faculty teacher-scholars, not graduate students.
