College of Arts and Sciences

The College of Arts and Sciences comprises multiple departments that reflect and promote studies in and personal pursuit of the finest in human artistic, intellectual, scientific and spiritual achievements. All curricula are aimed at enriching the lives of our students by enabling them to grow in sensitivity to themselves, their heritages and the world around them.

To achieve these ends, the College of Arts and Sciences directs the CBU Honors Program for selected students and, for all students, a series of integrated humanities courses that cross the usual disciplinary boundaries in order to create space for vital interdisciplinary interaction. Likewise, the college sponsors overseas study tours each summer that are open to all majors. These trips provide special opportunities and challenges to encourage personal and intellectual growth.

Integration of faith with learning is key to our identity and our mission, our tasks and our goals. Our commitment to applying faith to life is second to none. If you want to pursue a job to earn a living, a degree program in most any university will do. But if you want to pursue a calling, CBU and the programs in the College of Arts and Sciences will prepare you to live for something greater.
