VMI offers 14 majors across engineering, the sciences, and arts and humanities. Specialized degree tracks are available in Computer Science and Chemistry, and students also have the choice of a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Biology and Chemistry.
Students can select from distinct concentrations or sub-disciplines within many of VMI's academic majors. There are also 23 minors available, including multi-disciplinary topics and the ability to choose from 5 distinct foreign languages.
The Institute believes that academic excellence is best maintained at a small college when the number of disciplines offering degrees is restricted. 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. 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.

NOTE: Specialized tracks are listed separately, as are modern language minors.
