College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Dean Kathleen Cassity
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the foundation for WOU’s broad-based education. It is home to the academic divisions of Behavioral Sciences, Business and Economics, Computer Science, Creative Arts, Humanities, Natural Sciences and Mathematics and Social Science. The Interdisciplinary Studies Program is also housed within the college.
We offer a liberal arts core curriculum and a wide range of specialized degree programs that expand students’ horizons; hone skills that make students adaptable and flexible in a rapidly changing world; help students discover new passions and strengths; and prepare them for lifelong learning. Our graduates are poised to be engaged citizens locally and globally as well as productive contributors to a 21st-century economy.
College faculty and staff will extend the benefits of an advanced education to an increasingly diverse student body by collaborating within and across disciplines to identify and deliver that which is most important for a 21st-century college education.
- Provide all students with opportunities to learn via a strong, cohesive and broad-based education.
- Develop and maintain current, relevant and innovative curricula within and across disciplines.
- Provide traditional college-bound students with high-quality learning opportunities while expanding access to new populations.
