College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences

STEVE JOBS SAID IT BEST. “Technology alone is not enough. It’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the results that make our heart sing.”

The Virginia Tech College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences brings the perspectives of the arts, humanities, and social sciences to achieve meaningful solutions to complex human problems.

Together, they create works of lasting intellectual, cultural, and aesthetic value to make both immediate and enduring contributions to society.

Our college community joins 11 academic departments, three schools, three ROTC programs, and one incredibly spirited marching band. We proudly claim more than 600 faculty and staff members, 4,000 students, and 60,000 alumni. As Hokies, we all share an unwavering curiosity and a profound commitment to building a better world together.
