“R-MC’s class sizes, plus the curriculum’s extensive
, prepared me well for the rigors of law school and for the professional situations in which I find myself today,” says Barlow.
In law school, Barlow felt much better prepared than many of his classmates who had attended larger schools.
“As a lawyer, I feel I have a distinct advantage in my office and in the courtroom,” he says. “I twice conducted research at R-MC and traveled the country presenting my research with one of my professors. R-MC helped develop my research and writing abilities, as well as the ability to think on my feet and perform in a courtroom setting.”
Paving the Way for Success
Rather than prepare students for one career, Randolph-Macon College prepares students for a lifetime of careers in an ever-changing world. Exceptional faculty work with students to cultivate their ability to think critically and analytically and to find creative solutions for solving problems. R-MC graduates are well-prepared for successful careers, often far outside of their areas of study.
The Randolph-Macon EDGE
, the cornerstone of the
Center for Personal and Career Development
, helps Randolph-Macon students lead the pack when competing for jobs and top graduate schools. Students have the support of faculty, career coaches, alumni and staff as they focus on their personal and academic ambitions.
Students may choose to pursue paid or volunteer internships in a wide variety of settings. The
Bassett Internship Program
has been successfully placing students in academic internships both in the U.S. and around the globe for 30 years. Coordinated with the Center for Personal and Career Development, the program helps students identify their interests and matches them with an appropriate internship opportunity.
Four-Year Degree Guarantee
guarantees in writing that freshmen who meet the Four-Year Degree Guarantee requirements will graduate within four calendar years. If not, Randolph-Macon will waive tuition costs for courses needed to complete the degree. Currently, 95 percent of R-MC graduates complete their degree in four years or less—an important value-added benefit for parents to consider when visiting colleges with their students.
program offers students a beyond-the-classroom global perspective. Students can choose from a host of travel courses and semester-abroad programs.
The Schapiro Undergraduate Research Fellowship (
) program gives students the opportunity to conduct 10 weeks of original research under the guidance of faculty mentors. Many students present their findings at national and international conferences.
