College of Arts and Sciences

The diverse programs in the College of Arts and Sciences enable students to interpret, evaluate, and alter their world by fostering an awareness of the laws of nature along with the linguistic, artistic, and social media through which humanity inscribes its image on the world. Such programs develop a spirit of tolerance and rigorous intellectual honesty that help students shape their destiny in a free society.

The College provides both the environment and the resources through which students develop the intellectual discipline needed for graduate school, professional school, or careers in many professions. Students develop skills in communication and critical thinking necessary to analyze the natural world and society's interaction with that world, and to address both scientific and social issues in the objective and humane manner required by a democratic society.
