The College is the heart of the Washington and Lee liberal arts education. It is the home of twenty-one departments, four interdepartmental majors, and seven interdepartmental programs. Students may earn either the B.A. or B.S. degree in thirty-seven different majors and may also pursue one or more of thirty-six minors.
The more than 140 faculty members in the College, in departments ranging from Music to Geology to Religion, are dedicated to nurturing the intellectual capacity and curiosity of our students in an environment of collaborative inquiry. All first-year students are members of the College, and typically take a range of courses in the liberal arts in preparation for selecting a major course of study.
