Whether you’re working toward a bachelor’s degree or focusing on an advanced degree, the academic programs in the College of Arts and Sciences will inspire you, expand your point of view, and prepare you to be an engaged global citizen. From taking water samples to analyze in the environmental science lab to taking photos of the river for a digital media course, you’ll be an active participant in your education.
The Liberal Arts Internship Program partners with local community organizations – such as Fuse, Confluent, and Union Gospel Mission– to provide you with an individualized experience. This will allow you to apply your classroom knowledge to real-world problem solving and projects. The work you do with your internship mentor also will inform your academic work and position you to start a career after graduation.
Faculty within the college are known nationally and internationally for their research and scholarship, and they share their expertise with undergraduates and graduates in the classroom and through hands-on learning.
The Writing Center and CH2M STEM Tutoring Center are spaces dedicated to supporting student learners at all levels and from across the disciplines. Current students can meet with writing consultants and peer tutors for free outside the classroom in both group and one-on-one settings.
