College of Arts & Sciences

Main Content

A hands-on curriculum that helps you succeed.

In the College of Arts and Sciences, you develop the critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills you need to pursue a successful career.

Here, you don’t just memorize theories—you collaborate, integrate, and represent your point of view thoughtfully. Classes are small, which means you’ll receive personal attention and support from faculty. You get hands-on experience through internships, research with faculty, and study abroad opportunities. Our interdisciplinary offerings enable you to engage with the world from multiple perspectives.

When you graduate, you will be able to address problems  and offer viable solutions, because you will have spent the last four years doing just that.

Our Voices
Jessica Floyd
Politics and Government, '18

Don’t be surprised if you see Jessica Floyd ’18 reporting from the road during the next presidential election. Jessica already had broadcast and writing experience before she completed an internship at The Today Show and participated in Politico’s Journalism Institute in Washington, DC.  She produced a podcast series—A Seat at the Table—and is the first UHart student to produce and host a political talk show on Hartford Public Access Television.

I want to be a political correspondent. My ideal job would be to work at an owned-and-operated television affiliate.
