Mission Statement of the College of Arts and Sciences 

The College of Arts and Sciences is the intellectual center of the University of South Alabama and is the foundation for establishing and building the quality of the University’s academic programs. In the College of Arts and Sciences students receive broad exposure to all areas of academic inquiry, as well as in-depth knowledge in their chosen field of study. The College provides every undergraduate student at the University, regardless of major, with the fundamentals of a liberal arts education to enhance students’ knowledge and create an atmosphere in which students develop their own critical thinking, communication skills, and the tools with which to carry out independent inquiry. Such an education promotes a heightened sense of intellectual curiosity, an appreciation of the values and accomplishments of the sciences, arts and humanities, and a sense of awareness and responsibility for the well-being of their society.

 In achieving these educational goals, the College of Arts and Sciences will: 

  • offer a full range of subjects in the humanities, fine arts, social sciences, mathematics, and the natural sciences.
  • encourage breadth of learning and training in the fundamentals of scholarship.
  • create and apply knowledge in the arts and sciences through dedicated research, teaching, scholarship, and creative works.
  • foster educational exchange within the University, the Mobile community, and society as a whole.
  • maintain a community of teachers and scholars devoted to the preservation and discovery of knowledge and its transmission to students and to the public.
  • promote an intellectual climate that encourages lifelong learning and open and free inquiry
  • encourage and support the application of knowledge in service to the University, the Mobile metropolitan area, and the wider society.
  • promote diversity, tolerance, and mutual understanding among all members of the University community and society as a whole.
  • emphasize the regional uniqueness of southwest Alabama, including its cultural heritage, its natural environment, and its strategic location as a port city on the Gulf of Mexico.
  • prepare students to participate in the larger world beyond the region by giving them an awareness of the complexity of global issues and contexts.
  • prepare students for meaningful and productive careers and contribute to the development of an educated work force responsive to the needs of the region.

Service Philosophy

Students, members of the faculty and staff, and other visitors to the Dean's Office of the College of Arts and Sciences should find a high level of professionalism and a consistently friendly and helpful attitude. All communication should take place with sensitivity to racial, ethnic, religious and other characteristics of persons, and respect should be clearly evident in everything we say and do in our workplace.
