Welcome

At Sweet Briar, rigor runs deep.

Pre-med, biochemistry and molecular biology and an ABET-accredited engineering degree program prepare the next generation of STEM leaders. Distinguished authors mentor budding creative writers. Former business executives inspire future entrepreneurs.

A five-year Master of Arts in Teaching program combines a graduate degree with licensure preparation. The College’s Honors Program spans disciplines to foster critical thinking. And along with pre-veterinary, pre-law, and renowned English, arts and language programs, you can complete certificates in areas such as equine studies and arts management, create a self-designed interdisciplinary major or choose from more than 40 established programs of study.

Leading each of our disciplines is a professor who’ll change the way you see the world. Our faculty’s credentials are as impressive as yours can be: published authors; notable researchers in science, math and the humanities; archaeologists who’ve led digs in Turkey and Kazakhstan; and professors who’ve actually written textbooks on their subject matter. And because historically, our average class size is 12 students, you’ll have opportunities to get involved in your professors’ research, ask questions and connect with faculty one-on-one.
