Sweet Briar College (SBC) prepares women (and at the graduate level, men) to be productive, responsible members of a world community. It focuses on personal and professional achievement through a customized educational program that combines the liberal arts, preparation for careers, and individual development. The faculty and staff guide students to become active learners, reason clearly, speak and write persuasively, and lead with integrity. They create an educational environment that is both intense and supportive and where learning occurs in many different venues, including the classroom, the community, and the world.
We’ve been making history since our earliest days. Our alumnae have been political leaders, doctors and veterinarians, scientists, innovators, and disruptors. They’re community leaders and decision-makers. They’re generous and determined. Our women’s leadership core curriculum is innovative and energizing. When our students graduate, they are persuasive communicators who know how to think on their feet and bring people together. No matter what they study or where they go from here, Sweet Briar women are prepared to lead.
Sweet Briar College is dedicated to maintaining an inclusive, nurturing environment that respects individual choice and difference.
Sweet Briar College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Master of Arts in Teaching.
