Sweet Briar has a strong academic tradition. In 1950, the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa National Honor Society recognized the College's academic excellence by establishing a chapter on campus. Fewer than 10% of colleges and universities in the nation can boast having a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. We also have one of only two ABET-accredited engineering programs at women's colleges in the U.S. Our dedicated professors are leaders in their academic fields who will encourage you to perform at your highest level. In addition, through undergraduate research, study abroad and internship opportunities, you will actively apply your education in real-life settings on campus and around the world.
A Sweet Briar education is an investment in your future.

Six months after graduation, 96 percent of our students have jobs, are in graduate school or are taking time to pursue personal endeavors, more than 12 percent above the national average. You will also benefit from those who came before you through a diverse network of successful Sweet Briar alumnae who are eager to help you find your niche and follow your dreams. Remember, "she who earns the rose may bear it."
