Warren Wilson College

Warren Wilson College (WWC) is a private four-year liberal arts college near Asheville, North Carolina, in the Swannanoa Valley. The College offers 20 majors, 17 concentrations, 28 minors and four special advising areas at the undergraduate level. Two graduate programs are offered: the MFA Program for Writers, established in 1976, continues to set the standard for a low residency degree model. In 2018, the College launches a second low residency program: the MA in Critical and Historical Craft Studies.

Warren Wilson College provides a distinctive undergraduate and graduate education. Undergraduate education combines academics, work, and service in a learning community committed to environmental responsibility, cross-cultural understanding, and the common good. Through "the Triad", every undergraduate student completes a requisite course of study, works an on-campus job, and performs community service. WWC is one of the few colleges in the United States that requires students to work for the institution in order to graduate and is one of only seven colleges in the Work Colleges Consortium.

The college is notable for its surrounding environment and campus: a 275-acre (1.11 km2) working farm, market garden, and 625 acres (2.53 km2) of managed forest with 25 miles (40 km) of hiking trails.
