Majors and Minors

At VMI, you declare your major when you apply so from the beginning you’re with professors you’ll be working with throughout your cadetship.

VMI believes that academic excellence is best maintained at a small college when the number of disciplines offering degrees is restricted. The choice between a course of study leading to a bachelor of arts or a bachelor of science degree is made before the cadet enters VMI. Transfer from one major field of study to another after matriculation is permitted based on the availability of the major and approval of the area department head.
