Experience-based Education

Outside the Classroom

When it comes to personal growth and building relationships with faculty, few experiences rival undergraduate research. In Pamplin, we call it "RSCA," which stands for Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity. It refers to any educationally-beneficial project that students undertake alone or in small groups outside the classroom and under the mentorship of a faculty member.

Create a body of artwork, conduct research on a literary or historical figure, or analyze statistics on crime -- whatever form it takes, you'll benefit from close personal mentoring by a faculty member who is an expert in their field. You'll also likely come away with a professional or published work to advance your career or distinguish your application to graduate schools!

Research & Innovation

Whether you’re an undergraduate or graduate student, you’ll have opportunities to create your own research projects or work with faculty to tackle some of the world’s most complex and pressing challenges.

Research Center

Pamplin College’s Center for Social Science Research involves students as active partners in research projects that assist local public and nonprofit agencies improve their effectiveness.

Student Publications

Student publications are an excellent way to find your voice and strengthen your portfolio, and Pamplin College has a wide range to get involved with.

Clubs & Organizations

Student clubs and organizations help you “plug in” to campus life in a way that can lead to meaningful connections, new interests and resume-enhancing experiences.
