About Us

The College of Arts and Sciences is the intellectual, artistic, scientific and instructional heart of the university. We are home to a variety of academic departments, schools and programs, offering 42 undergraduate majors and 35 minors. Additionally, our research facilities encourage innovation and research among our faculty and students.

As an essential component of the Carolina Core, every undergraduate at UofSC comes through the College of Arts and Sciences at some point, making us an incubator of human curiosity and creativity for the entire university. We open doors to the world, preparing students for an increasingly globalized society. Our graduates are a critical element of the economic fabric of our state and the nation, creating a lasting impact on millions of lives.

A central aspect of our mission is to engage the community and bring positive change through research and scholarship. Many of our resources are open to the public in an effort to further that mission. We encourage you to come see a show, lecture or exhibition, sign your children up for a summer program, or engage our students as volunteers, interns or even employees.
