College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences

In CLASS, we offer courses and academic programs that provide students with the foundation for success in a dynamic, fast-paced, and diverse world.  These foundational skills help students excel and lead in any career, cultivate the creativity and critical thinking to adapt to diverse environments, and resolve society’s most challenging problems in a culturally competent and ethical way. CLASS is focused on cultivating skills that are vital to the contemporary workplace - teamwork, critical thinking, communication, and leadership.

CLASS houses the departments of English; Government; History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies; Language and Cultural Studies, Anthropology, and Sociology; Psychology; Social Work. The Institute for Collaborative and Creative Arts houses the schools of Art and Design, Communication, and Music.

Interdisciplinary Programs include academic minors in African/African-American Studies, Appalachian Studies, Asian Studies, Applied Creative Thinking, Veterans' Studies, and Women and Gender Studies. Many of our programs also include service-learning courses.
