College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. On behalf of the faculty and students in our academic community, we thank you for visiting our website today. We also invite you to visit us in person so you can experience our engaged faculty, our welcoming students, and our state-of-the-art facilities.

The College's thirteen academic departments offer dynamic programs that invite students to pursue their passions and use their curiosity to engage in learning experiences that propel our graduates into meaningful careers. In addition to coursework that helps students develop both broad foundational skills and in-depth disciplinary knowledge, students apply their learning through research opportunities, internships, and other hands-on experiences. Our students do not just learn about the world; they also contribute to it. We have generations of stories of our KU students and our KU alumni making a difference.

These stories are possible because of a dedicated faculty who have a passion for teaching and mentoring that touches students' minds as well as their lives. Please explore the various opportunities available by spending time with specific program pages, reaching out to chairs or faculty, and—most important of all—visiting campus.

We look forward to spending time with you!
