College of Arts and Sciences

KNOW THYSELF

What does it mean to be an educated individual? In the College of Arts and Sciences, we believe it means thinking critically and creatively – about everything. Questioning, analyzing, exploring – that’s what college is about.

 

It’s also about reading Les Miserable in a 48-hour reading marathon, or building a theatre set at 2 a.m., or presenting an English paper before a national committee of scholars. It’s about learning from professors who have a passion for teaching, who want to know your dreams and then help you achieve them. With our academically strong core curriculum taught from a Christian worldview, you will discover practical applications for your life. From the sciences to the arts, from humanities to mathematics, you will learn about the world – and yourself.
