These courses become a foundation for the rest of your college experience—and the rest of your life.

With over 600 undergraduate students in 55 academic majors and 9 pre-professional programs, the School of Arts and Sciences is the largest and most diverse school on campus.

The majority of courses in the School of Arts and Sciences are taught by full-time, highly qualified faculty members who care not only about their disciplines, but also about you as a student and person.

The School sponsors a wide variety of educational opportunities, including an undergraduate research symposium, career-building internships, international study opportunities, service learning projects, interdisciplinary programs, senior recitals, and capstone projects. These opportunities stimulate intellectual curiosity while preparing you for a fulfilling career and future graduate study.
