Welcome to the SRSU College of Arts and Sciences.

The College of Arts and Sciences is home to undergraduate degrees and graduate degrees housed in five academic departments:  Behavioral and Social Sciences, Biology, Geology, and Physical Sciences, Computer Science and Mathematics, Fine Arts and Communications, and Languages and Literature.  The Office of the Dean directly administers the Bachelor of  Arts in General Studies and the Master of Arts in Liberal Arts.

Additionally, the College of Arts and Sciences houses the Academic Center for Excellence and the Rio Grande Research Center.  The Academic Center for Excellence offers Sul Ross students opportunities to develop their academic possibilities  through the honors program, developmental courses, tutorial labs, academic skills workshops, and special initiatives such as the Lobo Literati League.  The Rio Grande Research Center houses sponsored research in the biological, earth, and physical sciences.

Three special convocations of the faculty, staff, and students are held annually to recognize excellence in research:  The Arts and Sciences Spring Lecture, the McNair-Tafoya Symposium, and the Arts and Sciences Graduate  Showcase.  The Dean of Arts and Sciences also hosts Starburst Saturday, an annual program held in the planetarium introducing young people to astronomy and physics.
