Academics at Richmond
At some universities, experiences like undergraduate research, living-learning communities, close faculty relationships, and fellowship funding are limited to a handful of students — there simply aren’t enough to go around. That’s not what you’ll find at Richmond. Our smaller size, coupled with opportunities that run deep and wide, means you’ll spend your time dreaming up ideas and making them happen — not worrying about the competition.
Richmond integrates a liberal arts core with a top-ranked school of business and the nation's first school of leadership studies, as well as schools of law and professional and continuing studies — a combination you won’t find anywhere else. But it goes deeper than that. When an undergraduate can take a first-year seminar with a law professor, or seamlessly pair an economics major with a minor in art history, that’s when you will know you are at Richmond.
