The College of Arts and Sciences is a diverse community of educators, students, and researchers from across the country and around the world who work together to advance the boundaries of human knowledge, foster critical thinking skills, promote intellectual inquiry, and develop an understanding of different human cultures necessary to become engaged global citizens.

These goals compel a commitment to creativity and inquiry free of bias and based upon the principles of objective scholar-ship. They require a responsibility to promote and convey those elements of the liberal arts and sciences that must be essential components of the educational goals of all units of the university. The college seeks richness through diversity of its programs and strength through erudition.

The College of Arts & Sciences is the university’s largest and oldest; it teaches the most students, and provides the backbone for Troy University’s educational and research missions. As a result, you will find a broad array of academic programs that will pre-pare you for careers in public and private sectors as well as post-graduate and professional schools. These programs emphasize the core values of a classic liberal arts education, as well as the skills and flexibility one will need to meet the challenges of the 21st-century workplace.

A degree from the College of Arts & Sciences is much more than preparation for a career—it is preparation for a complete, rich, and rewarding life.

In addition to general studies courses, major courses and minor courses, sufficient free electives should be chosen to total at least 120 hours.

As part of ongoing planning and evaluation, the College of Arts and Sciences regularly evaluates student learning outcomes for each degree program.
