Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences. As Dean of the College, I am privileged to be part of an exciting and talented team of faculty, researchers, and staff that strives for excellence in providing opportunities for students to learn through the creation of knowledge and service to the broader community. We celebrated our 75 th Anniversary in 2005 and are building for our College Centennial in 2030; we are not too old to grow and change.
The College of Arts and Sciences is the intellectual heart of the University. Our primary mission is to provide a quality education for all students, led by the very best teacher-scholars. The programs in the College encompass humanities, social sciences, natural and mathematical sciences that are increasingly interwoven into mosaics of the â€œliberatingâ€ arts and sciences. These programs are offered through 16 academic departments and several centers and institutes. We offer 45 baccalaureate, 35 masters, and 37 doctoral degree programs in a wide range of fields.
The College of Arts and Sciences provides the foundational coursework for students throughout the University and attracts many of the best and brightest students in the University. We also educate students for many careers and professions.
