Dean's Welcome

Welcome to Arts and Sciences!


With about three thousand select students majoring and minoring in the arts and sciences, and scores of faculty in thirteen academic departments, the college brims with intellectual and creative energy.

Talented, innovative faculty lead the way. Working with students in small classrooms and research labs, in rehearsal halls and studios, in the college museums and galleries, faculty create our vibrant and personalized educational environment.  From a first year student’s first days all the way through graduate school, the arts and sciences offer plenty to engage the curious, active mind.  Classes, research, study abroad, visiting scholars, artists and performers, internships, camps for kids, service to the community—there is always an exciting opportunity, project, or event.

College is a grand adventure.  Join us!
