Liberal Arts & Sciences

The School of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers a rich, disciplinary, and interdisciplinary curriculum—with extraordinary opportunities for undergraduate research, study abroad, and preprofessional preparation.

Schools of Thought
Courses are offered in film and media studies, the humanities, and the natural and social sciences. Students may choose from 23 academic majors or design an interdisciplinary major in the liberal arts that touches on several areas of study. Either way, you will benefit from:

  • close, personal interaction with faculty mentors
  • small class settings that challenge and inspire
  • an atmosphere fueled by critical thinking, originality, and creativity

The Senior Project
Typically, students spend their first years exploring and discovering a wide variety of subjects, and much of their senior year designing, researching, creating, and producing a major work—whether it’s a full-length film, an original scientific investigation, or a research paper. The senior project is an impressive achievement that often becomes the springboard for your future career.
