The College of Arts and Sciences is the oldest and largest college within The University of Scranton, with almost 2,000 students and 16 academic departments. In keeping with the Jesuit commitment to education of the whole person, we emphasize teaching as mentoring, excellence in research, and service to others. We believe our college draws upon the best of Ignatian education by emphasizing the promotion of social justice and the formation of students as women and men with a sense of stewardship for themselves, others, their environments and their communities.

Our approach encourages students to engage the complexity of our diverse and globalized world through careful and critical analysis. For this reason, we offer more than 40 majors, as well as a wide range of minors, concentrations and interdisciplinary programs. We encourage students to view their education as the pursuit of knowledge for both their own personal advancement and as a resource to the broader human community.

I invite you to learn more about our academic community at the University of Scranton, especially our commitment to academic excellence and to educating men and women for others.

Dr. Michelle Maldonado, Dean
