Prepare for Complete Living

If you want to live a fulfilling and stimulating life, then you need to prepare by cultivating broad perspectives, empathetic approaches to people throughout the world, and the ability to look at situations through a reasonable lens. If you desire to learn how to think, rather than what to think, begin your academic adventures with the College of Arts and Sciences where undergraduate students are encouraged to conduct student-originated research, work one-on-one with a professor through independent studies, and take advantage of study abroad opportunities.

People with liberal arts and sciences degrees can become journalists, public relations professionals, museum curators, national park rangers, archivists, scientific researchers working in the private or public sector, writers and editors, policy makers and politicians, performers on Broadway or with the Metropolitan Opera, professional artists and graphic designers, or they can create their own businesses. Many A&S graduates continue their educations at law, medical, and other professional schools; others continue studying their area of interest in graduate school and become college and university professors. The possibilities are endless!

With a liberal arts and sciences degree from the College of Arts and Sciences, you can realize your ambitions and help to bring about positive change in the world—now that is complete living!
