The College of Sciences and Humanities supports the university’s mission and is dedicated to promoting the formation of a well-rounded person, empowering students to reflect on our natural and social worlds and thrive as informed members of a global society.

Within the School of Humanities, at the undergraduate level, the college offers degree programs in digital writing and narrative design, English, history, liberal studies, philosophy, politics, and theology and religious studies.

Within the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, at the undergraduate level, the college offers degree programs in communication, criminal justice, psychology, and sociology.

Within the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, at the undergraduate level, the college offers degree programs in biochemistry, biology, and mathematics.

Undergraduate students seeking teaching licensure on the secondary level (grades 6-12) in biology, English, history/social science, or mathematics follow a prescribed program of studies that both fulfills the requirements of their major discipline and leads to secondary teaching licensure.

At the graduate level, students may pursue degrees in  English and humanities as well as forensic and legal psychology. A graduate certificate is available in ethics and leadership in criminal justice.

 
In addition, the College of Sciences and Humanities offers many of the courses that fulfill the Liberal Arts Core Requirements.
