What the Arts and Sciences have to say to our society has never been more significant than it is today. First and foremost, the College of Arts and Sciences is a student centered academic unit. We are proud of our high caliber students who show great intellectual and creative promise as well as strong character. Talented, dedicated, and readily available faculty members teach because they love their profession and students.

The College of Arts and Sciences emphasizes the concept of community and the individual’s place in it. We encourage each student to understand his or her role in creating the greater UMA community and making it an environment conducive to learning. As part of this process students find themselves in learning situations that ask them to hone their critical thinking and personal communication skills. In our college faculty, staff, and academic programs work together to help our students to realize their promise, to reach their intellectual, aesthetic, social, and moral potential: to become educated citizens of the 21st century.
