Academics

Academic Programs

The College of Arts and Sciences is the University’s largest college with 24 undergraduate majors and 28 minors. All of our programs offer small class sizes and the opportunity to learn in a hands-on supportive environment.

Here you can explore a variety of academic disciplines—from the arts and humanities, to sciences and social sciences. Study the great writers or learn to become one. Examine what we know about the past, then harness that historical understanding to hypothesize about the future. Explore the workings of the mind, the complexities of society, the diversity of the arts, and much more.

Although the courses vary greatly among our departments, each program within the College of Arts and Sciences offers you:

  • Experienced faculty who are committed to personal student advising and development
  • Small class sizes where you will have ample access to your teachers and the department's resources
  • A balanced emphasis on quality liberal arts studies and professional training and experience.
