College of Arts and Sciences

Developing the Whole Individual

Arts and Sciences majors at USA learn to combine their disciplinary knowledge with invention, teamwork, and creativity in order to find new answers and solutions. Whether in physics or philosophy, anthropology or visual arts, all fields in Arts and Sciences involve the study of those aspects of our world that address complex, open-ended problems and challenges. As a result, earning an Arts and Sciences degree is never a matter of rote learning and memorization, but is instead a much richer development of the whole individual.
