From the Dean

Welcome to the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.  I am pleased that you have taken the time to look at the many opportunities open to students who major in the arts, humanities, or social sciences.  Above you can find links to our departments, majors and minors, and other important information for you as a student at the University of Central Arkansas.  We have a dedicated faculty and staff eager to assist you with any questions and concerns you might have.  Many of your questions will be answered on these webpages.  If not, please contact my office or the appropriate department chair as we will be glad to assist you.

Many employers consider these areas of study the best preparation for a professional career.  This is because the arts, humanities, and social sciences emphasize broad knowledge, intellectual skills and personal and social responsibility.  In the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences we strengthen this by emphasizing a diverse and global curriculum and real-world learning activities, such as: art exhibitions, study abroad experiences, live performances, internships, undergraduate research projects, creative writing workshops, film festivals, service-learning courses, and many more. If students want to advance their education here, we offer graduate programs in Creative Writing, English, Film, History, Music, and Spanish. Our faculty are ready and willing to assist you with these decisions and provide you with input necessary for you to make an informed decision about your course of study.

The College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences is committed to global learning and hands-on academic experiences, to making a positive difference in society, and to excellence in the educational enterprise.  Join us in pursuing a valuable and diverse education.
