Courses for aspiring social entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and changemakers

Although Wesleyan does not offer a formal major or minor in Social Entrepreneurship, we have the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life, Civic Engagement Certificate, Philosophy Department’s Social Justice track, IDEAS, and classes across the curriculum that we recommend for aspiring social entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and changemakers.
