The Division of Arts and Sciences plays a primary role in the academic preparation of students to meet the mission of the College. This is done in two ways: 1) the Division houses the bulk of the courses that form the General Education requirements all students must fulfill for a liberal arts education at the College; and, 2) the Division houses the largest academic concentrations and areas of study leading to degrees in English, History, Religion, Sociology, Social Work, Mathematics, Biology, Social Work and Criminal Justice.
Through its academic offerings and advisement of students by faculty within each major, the Division meets its mission of developing the analytical, critical and reflective thinking skills of the student, thus providing the student with the preparation necessary to pursue graduate or profession studies, to have productive careers and and to function effectively in a global and technological society. The Division takes great pride in providing these services with a personal and hands on approach for every student, with a highly qualified faculty.
