Course Descriptions


The Virginia Governor’s School for the Humanities is a residential summer program for some of the commonwealth’s standout high school students who come to Radford for an intellectually challenging, university-level immersion in the humanities. Students will take an interdisciplinary approach to such subjects as history, literature, philosophy, anthropology, political science, economics, sociology, psychology, and media.

The four-week residential program will include opportunities for recreation, field trips, concerts, guest lectures, movies, student performances, and more.  To help guide programming, we select a theme. This year’s theme is:

Illusion … Reality … Perception.”
