College of Arts and Sciences

Graduates with degrees in arts and sciences have enjoyed the largest growth in employment and pay in the past three decades. This is because modern jobs require a diverse mix of skills and technical proficiencies, and that is exactly what we cultivate. Our curricula incorporate 4 key pillars to prepare graduates for the demands of an evolving job market and ever-changing world. We emphasize applied and experiential learning, 21st-century professional skills and literacies, integrated and interdisciplinary thinking, and a 360-degree advising structure.

From the classroom to the community and out into the world

Our students don’t wait until graduation to start leaving their mark on the world. They experience how groundbreaking legislation and public policies are shaped from congressional offices in Washington, D.C., and contribute to the design and development of new video games from developers such as Electronic Arts and Blizzard. Others publish real scientific research and study major health issues from inside some of the world’s most vulnerable regions. Students have every opportunity to engage their passion thanks to a powerful alumni network, deep internship pool, interdisciplinary projects and volunteer opportunities.

They also are able to begin blazing their own trails because of the example their professors set for them. Scholars, artists and scientists, our faculty are active and highly respected in their fields. They excavate 4,000-year-old archeological dig sites, publish avant-garde poetry, and direct community outreach programs based on the power of hip-hop music. Perhaps most importantly, they are eager to bring their students along on those journeys.
