At the heart of every great university is a college that serves as its academic center. The College of Arts and Sciences is the intellectual heart of Kansas State University.
The College of Arts and Sciences contains more than 20 departments and offers a number of special programs and secondary majors. With more than 7,000 students, it has the largest enrollment of any K-State college. It also offers approximately 85 percent of all freshman courses and 65 percent of all credits taught.
Encompassing studies in the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and fine arts, the College of Arts and Sciences gives you an exciting range of options. You can choose from more than 115 degree programs, study abroad experiences, and pre-professional options.
Arts and Sciences professors are committed to the art of teaching. They combine lectures, labs, and small-group discussions so that even the most complex theories will be within your grasp. And your class projects will test what you're learning--from painting a self-portrait to setting up your own psychology experiment to writing a news report that airs on campus radio.
Our professors are also internationally recognized researchers and scientists, building such world-class programs as a NASA Specialized Center of Research and Training and the Macdonald Laboratory particle accelerator. You can work with distinguished scholars on exciting projects in ecology, gravitation, atomic energy, laser technology, numerical analysis, and cancer research using state-of-the-art facilities and equipment.
Arts and Sciences grads go on to great things. Our students have built an outstanding record of winning prestigious scholarships and gaining acceptance into professional and graduate programs at rates far above the national average. And they have achieved success in careers ranging from medicine to playwriting.
The Arts and Sciences experience, with its provocative courses, respected faculty, and opportunities for individual research, will enable you to follow your interests and pursue your career ambitions.
