The Williams School

Washington and Lee is the only top tier liberal arts college to have a nationally accredited commerce school. The Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics has a full-time faculty of more than 40. Approximately 40 percent of the university's baccalaureate degree candidates are from the School, including many students majoring or minoring in diverse disciplines throughout the undergraduate program. Additionally, many students majoring in other disciplines (history, journalism, romance languages, biology, and mathematics, to mention only a few) take elective and/or general education courses in economics, business, accounting, and politics as a means of complementing their work in the arts, sciences, humanities, and languages.

The Williams School offers two types of degrees: the Bachelor of Science degree with Special Attainments in Commerce, and the Bachelor of Arts degree. B.S. candidates can major in Business Administration, Business Administration and Accounting, or Public Accounting. B.A. candidates can major in either Economics or Politics. In the major areas, the student can design a program of study from the 85 to 90 courses offered.
