Richmond's learning and research environment is grounded in the liberal arts and driven by the intentional integration of learning across five schools. It's defined by a culture of interdisciplinary connections, collaboration, and creativity, guaranteeing students close interaction with faculty and the ability to craft their academic experience.
Connected & Creative
All first-year students 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 there, Richmond provides opportunities for students to live, study, and travel together while immersed in an academic topic and guided by faculty mentors through a Living-Learning program.
Interwoven with the academic experience is the understanding that preparing for a career is part of the experience — and at Richmond that’s a four-year process, not a one-time service. Throughout your undergraduate years, you’ll work with Career Services counselors to identify your interests, find internships, prepare for interviews, and create professional connections.
