School of Arts and Sciences

The School of Arts and Sciences offers many opportunities for you to follow - or discover - your passion.

Why UC for Arts & Sciences?


“Arts” and “Science” have more in common than you might think. Our Arts & Sciences students are preparing to change the world for the better, and that requires a dual perspective. It means taking a scientific approach by asking the right questions and formulating hypotheses, but it also means that an artistic use of creativity and attention to detail is paramount.

Pursue Your Passion

Arts & Sciences is the largest college at UC, so there are many opportunities to pursue your passion. There are opportunities to take your education further as well, through meaningful internships, travel abroad, on-campus professional organizations, and opportunities to participate in our business and innovation competitions. With several unique minor options as well, Arts & Sciences is the true definition of a liberal arts education.
