In the College of Literature, Arts, and Social Sciences (LASS), we inspire novel and mold-breaking ways of viewing the world.
Including teaching, as well as creative and research activities in the fine arts, history, social sciences, language, literature, and culture, the College works to help understand the world and shape it for the better. This is done by offering thoughtful, diverse, and challenging opportunities to understand and reshape human activities analytically, imaginatively, and creatively.
We promote growth of knowledge and leadership ability as we facilitate the learning of skills relevant to one’s development as a person as well as a wide range of employers and industries.
