School of Arts and Sciences

Dean: Dr. George D. Cheatham, Jr.

The School of Arts and Sciences supports the university’s objectives to provide a fundamental grounding in the liberal arts through programs of study in the fine and applied arts, the humanities, mathematics, and the natural sciences.

At the undergraduate level, degree programs are available in art, biology, communication, English, fashion design, fashion merchandising, graphic design, history, interior design, liberal studies, mathematics, philosophy, politics, and theology and religious studies.

Undergraduate students seeking teaching licensure on the secondary level (grades 6-12) in biology, English, history and social science, or mathematics follow a prescribed program of studies that both fulfills the requirements of their major discipline and leads to secondary teaching licensure. The program in art education leads to licensure to teach students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Licensure at the elementary level (grades PK-6) can be pursued through a major in multidisciplinary studies. Also, for those who wish to teach students with special needs in grades K-12, a bachelor’s degree in multidisciplinary studies for special education: general curriculum is offered.

In addition, the School of Arts and Sciences offers the majority of courses that fulfill the Liberal Arts Core and University Requirements.

At the graduate level, the school offers programs in interior design and literature, language, and the humanities. See the university’s Graduate Catalog for additional details on all graduate programs.
