Shenandoah University's College of Arts and Sciences is your direct connection to a classic, broad-based education to satisfy both your intellectual curiosity and career goals. With a 10:1 student-faculty ratio, small classes and individualized learning opportunities, we put students at the center of all our decisions and events.
We blend the liberal arts with pre-professional courses and hands-on learning to prepare you for careers in the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. You’ll learn through small, engaging classes and relationships with faculty mentors; hone your skills to solve problems; and learn to use creativity and critical thinking to make informed decisions.
The social sciences examine societal norms and cultures. You’ll study human issues through local and global lenses, realizing that relationships within communities or populations start locally but can affect regions and communities across the globe.
Think creatively, analyze critically and communicate effectively within a global society. Students use a variety of methods to document, inspire, communicate, entertain and affect change through scholarship, digital storytelling and the written word.
The natural sciences are devoted to studying the natural world through applied science and scientific methodology to examine reality, steward our planet’s natural resources or improve the human condition. Students prepare for careers in research, education, biotechnology and the health professions.
