Embrace the &
At VCU’s College of Humanities and Sciences, we feel passionately about the possibilities the “and” in the College of Humanities and Sciences represents. As a student, you have the opportunity to take courses across multiple disciplines and, if you want, pursue a minor, certificate program, or double major. With two schools, 17 departments and three programs, you have a lot of options—and we'd love to have you join us.
