With nearly 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students hailing from all 50 U.S. states and more than 90 countries, A&S immerses you in a rich diversity of culture, experience, and thought. We encourage discovery across disciplines and schools. Roughly 34% of our undergraduates double major, and more than half add a minor—often mixing humanities, social sciences, and sciences. And with more than 100 majors and minors to choose from, you can easily find a course of study to fit your goals and interests.

Students have many opportunities to interact with our exceptional faculty—leaders in their fields known for their commitment to undergraduate education, research excellence, and mentoring.
