Concentrations are central to Southern Virginia’s efforts to launch our students into careers or graduate school. These programs are designed to connect the training students get in their majors and core courses to specific skills and experiences that they will use after college.

Concentrations contain a small number of required and suggested courses, as well as a required internship or practical experience. Moreover, advisors for each concentration work closely with individual students to guide and personalize the experience according to their specific interests, needs, and goals.

Students interested in concentrations should talk with their academic advisor or to the advisor of their desired concentration.

Concentrations marked with an asterisk (*) are designed to prepare students to seek a graduate degree.
