Academics at Richmond

The University of Richmond provides a collaborative learning and research environment unlike any other in higher education, offering students an extraordinary combination of the liberal arts with law, business, leadership studies, and continuing education. Students are guaranteed an integrated, interdisciplinary academic experience across any of the five schools.

Small class sizes with zero teaching assistants facilitate close interaction between students and faculty. And learning opportunities such as undergraduate research, study abroad and internships give a hands-on perspective to classroom study.

All first-year undergraduate students also enroll in a First-Year Seminar, which encourages exploration across a wide range of fields, from bioethics and math to art history and English. From the start, a Richmond education gives students the communication and critical thinking skills, the curiosity, and the confidence to pursue opportunities with passion.
