At the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS), you’ll find your passion, path and purpose. You’ll build your critical thinking, analytical and communication skills—and find ample resources to help you discover your career path.   

Here you will develop intellectually by engaging with faculty who are among the most distinguished in their fields—teacher-scholars committed to collaborative research and learning opportunities with undergraduate students. Through experiential learning you will apply and synthesize what you learn in the classroom to position yourself for diverse and interesting careers. From mentored research in your major, to internships at some of the nation’s top companies and medical, cultural and historic institutions, to career-oriented study abroad opportunities, you will find all you need to pinpoint what you want to do—and how to get there.    

Through integrated knowledge that encourages creativity and innovation, a CLAS education prepares you to shape the economy and culture of a challenging and changing world.
