Seventy-nine of the programs are unique in Virginia, many of them crossing the disciplines of VCU’s 13 schools and one college.

This program is a partnership with the Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts, one of the country's best schools for arts and design, under the direction of Professor Elizabeth Byland.
