Leading a culture of innovation
At the College of Arts and Sciences, we are leading a revolution in how to prepare students for an increasingly complex work world. We emphasize strong, individualized work, as well as the acquisition of diverse skills that translate well into real-world careers.
Students in the College of Arts and Sciences don’t simply think about conducting their own scientific research, tackling entrepreneurial endeavors, or submitting scholarly and creative work to journals. They make it happen, following the example of dedicated professors who engage in the very professions they teach. Arts and Sciences faculty are both educators and mentors. They not only spark the curiosity in their students to ask questions, but help them develop the tools necessary to answer them for themeselves.
Our interdisciplinary approach combines knowledge and skills from across the humanities, social and natural sciences, and 8 other professional schools. You’ll develop the flexible, nuanced ways of thinking and problem solving highly valued by employers. You’ll learn to collaborate with those from other backgrounds, while adding new perspectives and skills to your repertoire.
