About The College of Arts & Sciences

The primary mission of the College of Arts and Sciences is to produce well-educated, competent, resourceful graduates who are capable of living active, independent, productive lives and who are properly prepared to launch successful careers and earn satisfactory livings. To accomplish this mission, the college provides opportunities for qualified students...
  • To acquire the fundamentals of a liberal education.
  • To acquire a mastery of basic competencies and skills.
  • To obtain sound preparation for professional and graduate study.
  • To concentrate in several fields of the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.
  • Organized into thirteen degree-granting departments and the Department of Army ROTC, the college offers twenty-two separate majors leading to the Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Criminal Justice, and Bachelor of Social Work degrees. It also offers five masters-level programs: Master of Applied Social Sciences, Master of Biology, Master of Chemistry, Master of Physics, and Master of School/Community Psychology.
Students enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences are not limited to the several curricula offered by the college. They may take courses offered in other colleges and schools of the university, which, with the approval of the department chairperson, may be included in the degree program, used as a minor field of concentration, or taken without credit toward a degree. In order to graduate, students are required to maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 and a grade of "C" or above in all major and minor courses. All directed individual study (DIS) courses must be approved by the supervising professor, the chairperson, and the dean. Prior approval of the dean is required for all transient credit.
