We believe smaller is better. Our small size is the reason we are able to give each one of our students a big university experience full of opportunity.
The Bachelor of Arts is the heart of our academic community, with more than 30 programs offered in the humanities and social sciences. For more than 100 years, our small, supportive community has been bonded by a shared commitment to the liberal arts and social justice.
Our 1,800 Bachelor of Arts students engage in a broad and rigorous education through exceptional offerings in traditional disciplines such as Psychology, English, Political Science, and Fine Arts, and more unique programs that offer increasing value to our world today—Communications and Public Policy, Criminology, Gerontology, Human Rights and Journalism. Our students participate in experiential learning opportunities—service learning, field work, internships and practicums, travel-study, lab work—that allow them to use their education in practical settings and experience the value of a liberal arts education to society.
We believe the liberal arts are the best preparation for a life as a leader, a professional and a global citizen. Our alumni are our proof.
Our post-degree programs in Education and Social Work complement the Bachelor of Arts community, and offer students outstanding training through course work and practicums.
