Fort Valley State University is a small, public university that provides the funding, education, and research opportunities typically found at a much larger school. To that end, it is the only school that is a University System of Georgia member, a historically Black university, and an 1890 land-grant institution. FVSU is a strong producer of STEM graduates, partially due to its Cooperative Developmental Energy Program, which works to increase the numbers of minorities and women working in science and engineering. Through its partnerships with corporations and governmental agencies, it has provided over 480 scholarships and more than 850 internships. Academics are at the center of FVSU life, and there are 29 bachelor’s degrees on offer across 3 schools, with top majors including Biology, Criminal Justice, and Psychology. The Liberal Studies major (recommended for those looking to seek a secondary degree) allows for a broader, interdisciplinary curriculum that incorporates all areas of arts and science, in addition to some areas of agriculture and education. Through the FVSU Undergraduate Research Valley Scholars program, students can find financial and academic support on research activities in all disciplines.
