College of Arts & Sciences
The College of Arts and Sciences is composed of eight departments: Art; Biological Sciences; Chemistry and Physics; Communication and Theatre; Language and Literature; Mathematics; Music; and Social Sciences, which offer programs leading to several baccalaureate and graduate degrees. The college also offers the Interdisciplinary Studies degree, and a wide range of minors.
Faculty members in the college strive to be excellent teachers, contribute worthy service to the university and community, and produce a large amount of original scholarly research and creative activity. Students are not just a number in our departments; they receive careful advisement and are often engaged in our research or artistic activity as well.
We expect our graduates not only to excel within their major areas of study, but to also be knowledgeable and participating members of the local, regional, and global community. Central to this preparation is their development as lifelong learners, with the communication and analytical skills necessary to function in a technological and diverse society.
We invite you to discover what makes us special, and are confident that you will discover your own talents as well.
Dr. James South, Dean
