Nashville is a vibrant, growing city: large enough to offer a wealth of opportunity, yet small enough to feel like home. The College of Arts and Science is in the heart of it all, part of Vanderbilt’s 333-acre urban campus in bustling Midtown.

Educational Opportunities

Nashville’s economy is highly diverse, with particularly robust health care, financial, automotive, and publishing industries. Large corporations in the area include HCA, Asurion, Bridgestone, Nissan, Mars, Amazon, Dell, and HarperCollins. As the state capital of Tennessee, the city is also home to a variety of state and federal government offices. These sectors provide numerous internship and research opportunities for majors across A&S subjects, from chemistry and economics to English, political science, and more.
