University of Virginia - Wise

Wise, VA

The University of Virginia - Wise says, "The courses required of students in their first two years at the College serve not only to acquaint them with the many different disciplines, but more significantly to introduce students to the accumulated knowledge of the world in which they live. These courses help provide an understanding of the underpinnings of society, a knowledge of how that society functions, an awareness of culture, ours and others, and insights into the values on which our civilization is built."
