Leading a culture of innovation
As a student in the College of Arts and Sciences, you don’t simply think about conducting your own scientific research, tackling entrepreneurial endeavors, or submitting scholarly and creative work to journals. You make it happen.
Modern, collaborative classrooms enhance your learning. Classes are led by dedicated professors who engage in the very professions they teach. Educators and mentors, they’ll not only spark the curiosity in you to ask questions, but help you develop the tools necessary to answer them.
Our interdisciplinary approach combines skills from across the humanities, social and natural sciences to develop the flexible, nuanced ways of thinking and problem solving highly valued by employers.
Your major should be more than just a series of required courses. We believe in an individualized experience that emphasizes self-directed study, as well as faculty-led and independent research projects. Our highly personalized 360 Advising program is designed to assess your strengths and focus your educational and professional goals throughout your Quinnipiac experience.
Thinking beyond four walls
Experiential learning plays an integral part in your education. Numerous internships and unique partnership programs such as the Lab Synergy Internships, New Play Festival and Washington, D.C., Semester programs provide you with invaluable experience doing what you love in a professional setting. Service learning courses and studying abroad provide you with the crucial opportunity for cultural immersion and global engagement.
The College of Arts and Sciences is made up of inclusive communities of supportive, proactive and talented individuals. Regardless of their major, our students regularly participate in numerous venues for creative, scientific and social engagement. These include campus-wide poetry competitions and theater productions, as well as the student-run Psychological Science Symposium.
Students in the College of Arts and Sciences are self-directed, curious and motivated. In short, they take charge. They actively pursue their passions while completing their education, and in many cases begin their professional development as early as possible. Through fellowship programs and internships, they’ve directed their own plays, worked as research chemists for multinational companies, and have taken on humanitarian work all over the world.
