College of Liberal Arts and Education

The College of Liberal Arts and Education offers a broad array of disciplinary programs. The College provides all undergraduate students with a rigorous and forward-looking education in the liberal arts, social science and education and offers opportunities for students to major or minor in more than twenty areas of study. The College offers the bachelor of arts (B.A.), bachelor of science (B.S.) and bachelor of music (B.M.) degrees, pre-professional programs in health and law, early childhood, elementary, middle grades, and secondary education programs and numerous interdisciplinary programs.

The College also provides students with focus, depth and specificity in its disciplinary undergraduate programs. These programs engage students in the pursuit of knowledge in the discipline and cultivate facility with disciplinary modes of thought, research and practice, enabling graduates to pursue advanced study, service in the professions and the path of life-long learning. The curricula incorporate critical inquiry into the assumptions and practices of the various disciplines, inquiry that is essential for responsible citizenship and conscientious practice in the professions.
