Radford University, located in Radford in the U.S. state of Virginia
The university has a student/faculty ratio of 18:1 with an average class size of 34. Graduate students teach less than 2% of classes, so undergraduates work more closely with senior faculty than they might at a larger research university.
The university is organized into six undergraduate colleges: Humanities and Behavioral Sciences, Business and Economics, Education and Human Development, Health and Human Services, Science and Technology, and Visual and Performing Arts. Within the colleges, some fields are designated as “Schools,” such as the School of Nursing and School of Social Work (in the College of Health and Human Services) and the School of Communication (in the College of Humanities & Behavioral Sciences). The latter brings together former departments of media studies (journalism, broadcasting, Web design and advertising) and communication (speech and public relations).
