Arts & Humanities
VMI is a liberal arts college in the broadest sense of the term. Regardless of major, a cadet receives a well-rounded education. Cadets majoring in one of the liberal arts will find a challenging curriculum, respected professors, and well-resourced departments. Cadets are prepared to pursue graduate studies or move forward into key leadership roles in our country as civilians or military officers.
A liberal arts degree from VMI has opened doors for business leaders, civil servants, and diplomats, as well as authors, actors, and scholars.
A cadet may be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Arts with a major in English, history or modern languages and cultures. All three departments also offer minors and/or concentrations.
