Welcome to the office of Academic Affairs in the College of Liberal Arts. With over fifty departments, centers, and programs, we are the academic heart of the College. The College of Liberal Arts is a source of limitless opportunity for intellectual growth, for engaging faculty in and out of the classroom, for studying abroad, and for nearly any academic interest our students may seek to pursue.

The College of Liberal Arts is home to nationally ranked programs in the social sciences and humanities, housing four Title VI National Research Centers that study particular areas of the globe. Our faculty have won some of the most prestigious awards for their research, scholarship, and teaching, and they continue to excel at all levels of academic life.

Our curriculum offers a broad range of subjects to study, encompassing social and interpretive sciences, humanities, language education, and two of the most prestigious and competitive honors programs in the country. With over sixty majors and minors, our students can explore nearly every facet of the human condition and its cultural and literary expressions.


The mission of Academic Affairs is to foster and support excellence at every level of academic life in the college, including faculty recruitment and retention, curriculum management, and degree administration. The Associate Dean for Academic Affairs works with faculty committees and key staff to ensure that academic policies and requirements for Liberal Arts degrees continue to meet the College's commitment to academic and intellectual excellence.
