College of Arts and Sciences

At SLU’s College of Arts and Sciences, we’re educating the mind, body, heart and spirit.

In the College of Arts and Sciences, you can study everything from the smallest pieces of matter to the intricacies of the natural world. You’ll examine the nature and substance of the individual person, as well as the essence of human creativity and imagination. We will also help you understand the social and institutional world structures we share.

Finally, we explore the most fundamental questions about what it means to be human and live a good life as well as the eternal questions of existence itself. Our students are prepared for a world of work and the work of the world.

We are the oldest college at Saint Louis University, founded in 1818. We are home for study, self-inquiry and career exploration – all shaped by a Jesuit tradition that encourages a commitment to research, service and outreach to the community.
