Why Should I Choose a Major in Arts & Sciences?

The College of Arts & Sciences gives you the opportunity to discover, create, innovate, analyze, disseminate and preserve knowledge.  You will develop the incredibly transferable skills of how to problem-solve, think critically and strategically and integrate what you learn in textbooks with the real-world issues that we all face today.  You will have the resources and training to adapt your education to almost any career field that offers itself to you.

"Studying Philosophy taught me two things: I learned how to write really clearly. I learned how to follow an argument all the way down, which is invaluable in running meetings. And when I studied the history of science, I learned about the ways that everyone believes something is true- like the old notion of some kind of ether in the air propagating gravitational forces- until they realized that it wasn't true."- Stewart Butterfield, Cofounder and CEO of Slack Technologies.
