The College of Arts and Sciences is organized into disciplinary academic units:

The School of Nursing

The School of Nursing provides quality instruction and training to undergraduate and graduate nursing students. This School is organized into three divisions:

Wesley Seminary at Indiana Wesleyan University

Wesley Seminary was established in 2009 as the first seminary of The Wesleyan Church, providing innovative educational opportunities for ministry professionals. The Master of Arts in Ministry and Master of Divinity programs offer unprecedented accessibility to ministerial education for working adult students.

The Graduate School

All academic programs, undergraduate and graduate, reside in one of the other four Principal Academic Units, so the Graduate School does not have programs of its own. Rather, the School provides oversight of all graduate education at IWU through the establishment of policies and standards for graduate education, through strategic planning for graduate education, and through support of teaching, learning and scholarship for graduate faculty and graduate students.
