Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Delaware, where arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences comprise the intellectual and cultural life of the oldest and largest of the University’s seven colleges. Here, we blend the rich liberal arts tradition with the newest advancements in science and research. From a Nobel Laureate to a Rhodes Scholar, our faculty and students enrich not just our campus community but the world.
Our students are actively engaged in “discovery learning,” studying solar activity in Antarctica, producing documentaries in Uganda and working alongside faculty on the most pressing questions of our day. Our faculty are mentors, researchers and experts in “idea leadership,” educating the next generation of scholars and advancing the scholarship of their fields. Our alumni exemplify our status as a “talent magnet,” using their knowledge and education to thrive in their professions.
With 23 academic departments, 27 interdisciplinary programs and centers, and more than 10,000 students, the College of Arts and Sciences invites you to learn more about our great college by visiting us in person—or virtually, through these pages.
