You’re fiercely curious. You think that learning is a lifelong adventure that can’t be confined to one discipline. You know that following a narrow path of study is neither satisfying, nor the best pathway to success. That’s why you love learning about all sorts of topics. Debating. And following your interests knowing they’ll only help you achieve your goals.

That's why we love the liberal arts, too. In our College of Arts & Sciences, you'll choose from hundreds of courses in the humanities, social sciences, natural and physical sciences, and mathematics. You'll gain broad perspectives and the critical-thinking and communication skills that employers seek.

Our professors are passionate about their fields and eager to help you dig deep into topics. You'll be personally fulfilled and prepared for a great career — no need to settle.

...MINORS. Enhance your degree with a minor that broadens your career or graduate school options by boosting your skill set. Or one that simply lets you continue to develop a personal passion - like dance, African-American studies, art, or women's and gender studies.
