Embrace the And

At VCU’s College of Humanities and Sciences, we feel passionately about the possibilities the “and” in the College of Humanities and Sciences represents. That’s why you see the ampersand–our &–everywhere! 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. You will also combine a solid liberal arts foundation with job readiness. With two schools, 17 departments and three programs, you have a lot of options—and we'd love to have you join us.
