Why Study Here?
We educate students for change in this dynamic global society. We challenge and provoke critical thinking. We create.
Meet Our Students
A liberal arts education doesn't always translate to a pre-defined career — it prepares you for designing your own.
See how our students and alumni apply what they've learned here to the professional world.
Beyond the Classroom
Our programs offer lots of opportunities for you to enrich your education, both inside and outside of class.
"Attending Virginia Tech was the experience of a lifetime. During my time at Tech, I learned so much about myself, others, and how I can apply my skills and passions to do my part in making the world a better place."
"When I first arrived at Virginia Tech, I was petrified of walking into a packed lecture hall. My fears were quickly erased as my professor began to talk. She inspired me to think of ideas and ask questions that I never knew were possible."
“I made the decision to work in public service during my junior year at Virginia Tech. I knew it would be an incredible opportunity to give back to my community in a meaningful and direct way.”- Colin MacDermott, Political Science '12
"I like the class sizes here because my learning is individualized. In small classes, you have more opportunities to work closely with your classmates and your professors.”
