Faculty and Courses

It is the purpose of the College of Liberal Arts, as a center of learning and scholarship, to help students achieve an understanding of the heritage of civilization and to educate them in the tradition of the past and realities of the present so they may recognize and act upon their obligations to the future.

The college seeks to meet the educational needs of each student through the development of interests and skills, which, combined with the individual’s potential, makes possible a richer, more useful life.

The College of Liberal Arts is made up of four divisions:

Fine and Performing Arts Division:
Departments of Art and Art History, Music, Theatre and Dance
Humanities Division: Departments of English; Languages, Literatures, and Cultures; Philosophy
Social Sciences Division: Departments of Anthropology, Communication, Geography, History, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology
Teacher Education Division:
Department of Education


The College of Liberal Arts offers three degrees: bachelor of arts, bachelor of fine arts, and bachelor of music.

Bachelor of Arts

These programs primarily provide a broad liberal education along with a major in one of the fields listed on this page.

Bachelor of Fine Arts

This curriculum provides training for students who plan to enter a professional graduate school.

Bachelor of Music

This curriculum provides professional training in performance, in musical theory, and in music education, and it allows students to develop their talent to a standard equivalent to the one achieved at conservatories of music.

Five-Year Program: B.A.-M.B.A.

The College of Liberal Arts and the Whittemore School of Business and Economics offer a combined five-year program leading to a B.A. degree in French, philosophy, or psychology and an M.B.A. degree. Information about the program can be obtained from those departments or from the undergraduate counselor in the Whittemore School.

Combined Programs of Study

In addition to pursuing a single major, students may combine programs of study as follows: minors, second majors, dual-degree programs, student-designed majors.
