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 combines the wide-ranging intellectual exploration of the liberal arts with the technological advantages of a leading research university and the civic engagement of a land-grant institution. Recognizing that technology alone is never a solution and that innovation is fundamentally a human achievement, the college brings the perspectives of the arts, humanities, and human and social sciences to achieve meaningful solutions to complex human problems.
Faculty members in the college work transcend disciplinary boundaries to ensure that technologies and public policies are in service to humanity. Students learn nuanced thinking amid real-world complexity to enable thoughtful and profound contributions to society. And both faculty members and students create works of lasting scholarly, cultural, and aesthetic value.
Together, the college’s 12 academic departments, two schools, and three ROTC programs offer 33 majors, 58 minors, 31 master’s programs, and 27 doctoral programs. The college proudly claims nearly 600 faculty members, more than 4,000 students, and more than 60,000 alumni!
