Welcome to the College of Letters, Arts & Sciences!

Whether you are joining us as an undergraduate or graduate student, you will find that we are more than a traditional liberal arts and sciences college. First, you have access to extraordinary faculty. We have philosophy professors whose syllogistic arguments will make your head spin, art professors who will awaken your creative potential, math professors whose limits extend well beyond calculus, psychology professors who know your every motivation, and literature professors who have plumbed the depths of the human condition. Yet, we are much more. Foremost, we are focused on our students becoming successful in their academic, professional, and personal lives. How do we do that? Through our:
