Current Students


As students develop socially and intellectually, they realize that the setting of their education, Richmond, has rich cultural diversity. VCU has a vast amount of resources for students to excel in their courses and extend their scholarship beyond the classroom into a larger community. The School of World Studies provides all the necessary language and scholastic media for class curricula, and a wide array of other materials to enhance learning, research, and personal study. We hope that all students of the School realize this incredible potential and use it to solidify themselves in both physical and intellectual communities.
