School of World Studies

The School of World Studies promotes understanding of diverse ethnic, racial, sexual, gender, cultural, religious and national communities through our teaching, research and service. We invite you to join us in this endeavor by engaging in respectful dialogue, taking courses that explore the diversity of human experience, imagination and invention, and by getting to know your neighbors at VCU and around the world. We affirm the mission of the School to support in deeds and words a culture that enables everyone to learn, live and flourish.



Students are encouraged to apply for our scholarships for 2017-18. The deadline for applications is February 28th, 2017.

Gain work experience in an area related to your major and learn new skills, cultures and world views. 

The School of World Studies regularly hosts and sponsors events relevant to all studies both within the School as well as across disciplines at VCU. Check out our calendar for other relevant events both at VCU and in the community.
