The College of Science and Liberal Arts (CSLA) is committed to student success through exemplary research, superb artistry, and outstanding education. Our six departments—Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Environmental Science, History, Humanities, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics—are home to internationally-renown research centers, award-winning researchers and teachers, and outstanding students. We are a diverse group of scientists, scholars, and artists bound together by a commitment to intellectual excellence and the desire to understand the natural and social world in which we live.
Research and education are two sides of the same coin in CSLA. We integrate research into our courses and engage students in our research programs. Our departments thrive on interdisciplinary pursuits that connect theoretical knowledge with practical applications. Our goal is to build upon our expertise in the sciences and the liberal arts to understand and improve our global community while expanding the horizon of opportunity for our students.
