Health Sciences

Late last year, healthcare surpassed manufacturing and retail to become the largest source of jobs in the United States. At Wingate, we were ready. Our variety of professional programs join pure science with practical, clinical care so that you can put your knowledge to work improving the well-being of others. We’ve also designed our undergrad science curricula with distinct pathways to get you to your passion faster.

Social Sciences

How we think, behave and relate to one another makes society work or prevents it from working. Understanding cultural context and exploring ways to help make life better for individuals and the larger community are two of many challenges facing those in the social sciences. That’s why hands-on learning and research are hallmarks of Wingate’s criminal justice, human services, psychology and sociology programs.

Sport Sciences

Whether your goal is to guide the young, create a lifelong passion for an active lifestyle or work with a professional sports organization, you can begin your journey in Wingate’s School of Sport Sciences. Courses that delve into sport law and education theory and exposure to the latest sports research help prepare our students, as do hands-on experiences with teams from prep level to pro.

Business

Competitive? Yes. Collaborative? Definitely. But creative? Absolutely. Students in Wingate’s Porter B. Byrum School of Business get a broad understanding of what it takes to survive in an ever-changing marketplace. Whether pursuing one of our five undergraduate business degrees or working on a capstone project in our master’s programs, our students put their own passions in the foreground and refuse to be satisfied with business as usual.

Education

It is true that teachers touch the future, but at Wingate, they can start having an impact in the present. Our teacher education majors begin field experiences in K-12 settings during the first half of their freshmen year and continue each semester to engage in hands-on learning that integrates theory and practice. The Thayer School of Education offers 11 undergraduate majors in addition to master’s and doctorate programs tailored especially for working adults.

Arts & Sciences

From American government to zoology, the diatonic scale to scalene triangles, the poems of Robert Frost to the thawing of permafrost — there’s a lot to study in the arts and sciences at Wingate. No matter your major, our Global Perspectives (GPS) core curriculum will help you learn to think critically, understand global cultures and write and speak clearly. With GPS, you can set your own course.
