College of Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts covers the traditional building blocks of education: most areas of knowledge in the humanities; the fine and performing arts; mathematics; and the biological, physical, and social sciences. Founded in 1848 with four professors, the College of Liberal Arts is the oldest and largest division of the university.

All degrees at the College of Liberal Arts include required course work in natural sciences, social sciences, mathematics, humanities, and fine and performing arts. An ideal education, no matter what your ultimate specialization is, will help you live a meaningful and useful life and do good for the world. The College marries that ethos with a research-focused, award-winning curriculum.
