Education for real-world ambitions
The breadth of subjects and sheer number of degree programs offered in the College of Arts and Sciences combines all of the traditional strengths of a liberal arts education with focuses on career preparedness and interdisciplinary collaboration.
We challenge traditional ideas here about “what you can do with your degree.” We believe that creativity, knowledge and skill are produced across and between disciplines. This is made possible through flexible curriculum structures and a belief that no course is random, but a piece that fits into a bigger picture – your picture.
Thanks to this philosophy, double majoring or taking on a minor is made clearer and easier, and is in many cases encouraged. It also opens the door to our unique Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) majors and minors, which expose driven students to several disciplines and academic areas, and independent majors which allow them to design a program that fits their individual goals.
Whether you arrive to us declared or undeclared, you have more options than you ever realized. With so many potential starting points, pathways and end results, you’ll need guidance throughout your experience, and that’s exactly what we provide. We’ll help you discover the point where your abilities and passions intersect, and take steps into a future that speaks to your values and ambitions.
