It is my pleasure to welcome you to the College of Arts &
Sciences at Saint Louis University.
Your particular interests may direct you to one of the College's 16 academic departments and 10 interdisciplinary study programs that, more broadly, may be grouped into the categories of fine and performing arts, humanities, sciences or social sciences. Common to these programs is the Jesuit tradition of critical thinking, a sense of community, and service to others.
I invite you to find out more by browsing both the Arts & Sciences and University web links. You'll find out how the Arts & Sciences contribute to every aspect of your experience at Saint Louis University. You can get a quick snap shot through news postings (here and in SLU's daily Newslink) that report awards and recognitions for our top-notch faculty, activities of our students in national competitions, campus programs, co-curricular clubs, living-learning communities, and stories about our distinguished alumni.
As you focus your attention to resources available in the College, you'll discover here a process of living/learning that puts together character, value reflection, scholarship, and career preparation. Arts & Sciences at SLU are central to the University's mission to educate the whole person.
We in the College of Arts & Sciences are pleased to be part of a vital University, located in one of America's great cities, where high-tech meets human diversity, with close linkage to the world-wide system of Jesuit education. Both the College and the University are large enough to provide great resources but small enough to retain the true spirit of community.
