Your passion. Your profession.

Build an understanding of the world around you. Learn to express your knowledge and creativity. Find your voice and share your vision. At the College of Arts and Letters, you will hone your analytic, artistic, and linguistic abilities—all while growing into a talented professional with the skills to succeed in a wide range of careers.

The College of Arts and Letters encompasses the humanities, creative arts, and language studies, but we represent much more than a collection of academic departments. Our students become teachers and interior designers, historians and philosophers, lawyers and professional writers, and imaginative leaders in many career paths. Your education in the fine, performing, or liberal arts will open doors to worlds you’ve never dreamed of. Most of all, you’ll maintain a spirit of curious inquiry that will enrich your life for decades to come.
