College of Arts and Science
Faith-Focused Arts and Sciences
In every other college at AU, you specialize: be it business, nursing or another professional field. In the College of Arts and Sciences you study the root disciplines of specialized fields and gain an appreciation for how liberal arts fields—from literature to mathematics—characterize our world and grapple with moral questions.

From Biochemistry to Digital Media
In the College of Arts and Sciences, you'll hone skills in critical thinking, communication, logic and rhetoric that'll serve you well past your college years. After majoring in fields from biochemistry to digital media, our graduates go on to medical school, law school, grad programs in physical therapy and other fields, or start careers in business, industry and the public sector.
While other colleges tend to narrow your focus down within specialized disciplines, Arts and Sciences expand your horizons by connecting them.
