About Wesleyan College
Chartered as the Georgia Female College on December 23, 1836, Wesleyan was founded through the efforts of a group of Macon citizens and the Georgia Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church as evidence of their concern for the education of women. The Reverend George Foster Pierce was elected president of the Georgia Female College in 1838, and the College opened its doors on January 7, 1839. Ninety young women were enrolled in our first session.
More than 180 years later, Wesleyan continues to educate women to do the extraordinary in their professions and in service to their communities. Wesleyan offers undergraduate degrees in 30 major and 33 minor academic programs, as well as eight pre-professional programs - allied health services, dentistry, engineering, law, medicine, pharmacy, seminary, and veterinary medicine - plus the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (BFA).
