All students begin as part of the School of Arts and Sciences. Approximately two-thirds of the University’s students (2,300) then continue their study in arts and sciences, pursuing Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in the more than 40 disciplines offered by the school.

The School of Arts and Sciences is a blend of studies from all areas of life - health, fine arts, natural and urban environments, government, technology, cultures, emerging scientific studies, and literature are a few examples. Though the fields of study in the School of Arts and Sciences are diverse, each discipline pursues the common goals of challenging students to think critically and independently, to make decisions based upon their assessments, to communicate effectively, to gather and evaluate information and others’ opinions, and to work collaboratively, expanding their understanding of others to better comprehend the systems and situations around them. The programs ask rather than tell. Working together across disciplines, the faculty and students explore how things work, ask why they operate as they do, evaluate what has been successful, and consider possible solutions or advancements. Faculty collaborate with students to research and create data or art, encouraging them to build their own knowledge and skills and demonstrating how to most effectively communicate and apply what they learn.
