Dean's Message

Dr. Peter Braza

Welcome to the College of Letters, Arts & Sciences

We are home to 6,000 students in 18 departments with majors ranging from art to physics. As dean, I am grateful to lead such a vibrant enterprise. I am proud that we have one-on-one research opportunities for our students as well as extensive internship opportunities. Further, we participate in the National Student Exchange program, allowing our students to study at our partner universities as well. For those studying at the graduate level, we have master degree programs in nine departments and we have three Ph.D. programs.

We tie everything we do around our vision: We will position our graduates for success in their professional and personal lives through innovative and collaborative teaching, scholarship and connections with the community and the broader world.

Peter A. Braza, Dean
