Welcome to the College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences
The College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences (LAS) at UCCS, established in 1972, is a community of teaching scholars whose mission is to advance an understanding of the human condition and the natural world and communicate this understanding to the people of Colorado and the world at large.
The College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences provides breadth of instruction for all students of the UCCS campus, including those in professional schools and colleges. This breadth exposes all students to the challenge, excitement and demands of clear self-expression, analysis, reasoning, comparison, experimentation, and awareness of alternative perspectives. The College also provides depth in specific academic disciplines for majors within the college. This specialization is important not only for skills, perspectives, and knowledge gained, but also as the key to success in subsequent education and careers.
The College offers Bachelor's degrees in a full range of traditional liberal arts majors and minors, selected Master's graduate programs, and a PhD in psychology. LAS also offers pre-professional programs, certificate programs, and cooperative degree options (with the College of Education) for students seeking licensure in elementary teaching, secondary teaching or special education.
