Villanova Integrated Academics (VIA)

The Office of the Provost is offering integrated curricular courses through the Villanova Integrated Academics (VIA) program. VIA courses cut across subject-matter lines, bringing together students and faculty from varying majors and colleges to experience how diverse disciplines work together in real-world scenarios.

VIA courses are open to all Villanova undergraduates, fulfill elective requirements and expose students to new industries and opportunities in an experiential setting.

Interested students should speak to their academic advisors about registering for VIA courses.

Faculty interested in developing a VIA course should consult the call for proposals. The Office of the Provost will be entertaining proposals for new VIA courses in Fall 2021.

Questions should be directed to the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning via email.
