The College of Arts, Letters, and Sciences (CALS) mirrors the same arrangement of liberal arts that were assembled in the ancient Greek academy, where they reflected the higher concerns of free citizens, and the pursuit of which were understood to liberate the spirit.

It is this philosophy that we relay to the tremendous proportion of core class students we serve across the entire university. The influence of our college can be felt throughout—in the critical thinking skills and research acumen instilled in our students.
