Sweet Briar College grants the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Master of Arts in Teaching, and Master of Education. The College offers more than 35 programs of study as well as self-designed and interdisciplinary majors. Students create and learn with an exceptional faculty, almost all of whom hold the doctorate or the appropriate terminal degree. An 8:1 student/faculty ratio insures that classes are small and each student’s educational program is customized. Each academic year consists of two semesters. Students are guided in the pursuit of special interests, not only in academic coursework, but also through internships, research opportunities, summer fellowships, service experiences, and independent study. The College strongly encourages study abroad, at one of Sweet Briar’s distinguished programs or through another approved international program.
Sweet Briar is a residential community. Sweet Briar women have enough ideas and enthusiasm to support nearly 50 student-led and student-managed organizations — everything from art and musical groups to student publications and cultural awareness organizations. A strong leadership program helps students develop leadership skills. Many students take part in volunteer service projects during school terms and vacations, putting these skills to work.Categories: Sweet Briar College
