Being that Wittenberg is a liberal arts university, students are required to take a selection of general education courses. This allows students to be creative in their choice of courses. Students are able to take courses that interest them, even if they don't pertain to their major or minor, because they may fall in the general education requirement. Also, there is a great deal of flexibility in course requirements. For example, two art credits are required before graduation, yet for those students who may not be the most "artistically gifted," there are different English courses that are available that count for an "A" credit, along with dance, theater, etc. This type of educational system helps students develop academically in a more well-rounded way.
Professors can be very challenging but helpful at the same time. If you walk through an academic building, you will see that professors keep their doors open so that any student can stop in and ask a question, or simply say "hello." The amazing faculty most likely ranks as one of the top reasons why students love Witt. Get to know your professors; they are always willing to help and will be crucial when it comes to graduate school/job searching. Witt academics is tough but fair. You'll be successful if you keep up on your studies and use the resources that are available to you. As much as studies are important, Witt students tend to be very actively involved on campus with different clubs and organizations. So take studying seriously, but have fun, too!
