Be curious. Be challenged. Be inspired.
Where will your interests take you? In the College of Arts & Sciences — home to the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences — you’re not limited to one learning path. Instead, you’ll experience a broad education and discover more about who you are. Our faculty develop courses you won’t find anywhere else (check out SCAND 375: Vikings in Popular Culture or ART H 200: Art in the Modern Imagination: Athena to Lady Gaga, among others). You can choose a major that excites you and makes you career-ready. Broaden your perspectives as you dig deeper or add a second major or minor that’s a bit unexpected. Here, no program is a silo. When we say arts and sciences, we mean it.
The College is where academic rigor meets self-discovery and community. Whether you want to explore the world through study abroad, participate in groundbreaking research, take center stage, or intern with a Fortune 500 company, your opportunities are nearly unlimited when you start your journey here.
Seek knowledge and meaning through artistic experience — from visual to performing arts — while embracing experimentation.
Explore the human experience from diverse perspectives through the study of language, literature, and culture.
Study everything from differential equations to living organisms to galaxies, and connect ideas across disciplines and ways of thinking.
Your major doesn't define your career path. I have seen friends stress because they believe they have to get into X major to do X job, but you can leverage many different degrees to get to where you want to be. ...Don't fixate on 'the path.’ Define your own.
Where can Arts & Sciences take me?
Our students use their education to make a difference in the world around them. Employers value the diverse perspectives Arts & Sciences students bring to the table. Even as the employment landscape changes, you’ll gain the breadth of skills needed to stay competitive and create a meaningful career.
