The opportunity to gain new perspectives on their coursework through new avenues of experience. The opportunity to demonstrate to world-class employers the skills and acumen that liberal arts students have to offer—and for students to see that for themselves. The opportunity for our undergraduates to envision the paths before them and look to life after graduation not as a cause of anxiety, but as a source of boundless enthusiasm.We seek to empower our students to embrace their liberal arts education, and to help them be thoughtful and proactive about what they learn inside and outside of the classroom. Most of all, we seek to help them discover how that learning relates to their broader goals as students and individuals.

The Division is the administrative home to many of the College’s high-impact and experiential learning opportunities, including study abroad, internships, and undergraduate research, as well as academic resources such as the Science Learning Center, the English Language Institute, and the classroom and teaching technologies powered by LSA Instructional Support Services. We support the work of the LSA Curriculum Committee, and are equally dedicated to helping the College explore inclusive pedagogies and new curricular – and co-curricular – approaches to teaching and learning in the 21st century through academic initiatives. Ultimately, we serve as a resource for students, faculty and staff engaged in various facets of the College’s undergraduate education mission both inside and beyond the classroom.


The study of sociology gives you the skills all liberal arts majors do: critical and analytical thinking, writing ability, cultural competence, and self-awareness. However, mastering the basics of sociology as an academic discipline also provides you with the big-picture thinking abilities that are required of 21st century knowledge workers. Sociology teaches you to understand the situations of people different than you, another advantage in this rapidly globalizing world. You’ll become adept at recognizing and appreciating context and how all human interactions are interconnected.
