Welcome to the College of Arts & Sciences!

Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences at Pittsburg State University. We are both pleased and proud to share with you the many facets of our dynamic college. In keeping with the university's mission emphasizing transformational experiences for students and the broader community, we are actively engaged in teaching, scholarly and creative endeavors and service, with excellence in teaching students being our number one priority.

The College of Arts and Sciences is noted for its size and diversity of offerings. It is comprised of eleven departments and one school offering more than fifty undergraduate and graduate degree programs as well as a number of affiliations across colleges, as with the College of Education leading to the Bachelor of Science in Education. Our college accounts for the majority of course offerings in the university's general education package as well as approximately half of the university's student numbers. As you peruse our website, please explore the individual departments, school and programs in the college. You will find information about potential careers, course offerings in academic majors and minors, student-faculty research initiatives, special student learning opportunities, scholarships, student organizations, partnerships with community groups, interdisciplinary collaborations, department/school contact information and more including direct links to academic programs’ Facebook, YouTube and other social media sites.

It is an exciting time to be a university student no matter whether you are attending for the first time, transferring from another institution of higher education or simply engaging in learning that meets a particular personal goal. Pittsburg State University is large enough to provide you with many curricular and extracurricular opportunities yet it is small enough to ensure that you will never be just another face in the crowd. Our exceptional faculty and staff care about you and your dreams and goals for the future. In a recent meeting with students in the College of Arts and Sciences, they expressed the sentiment that Pittsburg State University provides an excellent education for an excellent value!

We trust that you will contact any of our academic offices for more information that you may need as you make the decision to invest in your future in the College of Arts and Sciences! Thank you for your interest in Pittsburg State University.
