Every student at Roosevelt benefits from our College of Arts and Sciences, the University’s largest college. Featuring more than 60 majors and minors across 10 departments, it serves as the foundation for Roosevelt's liberal arts education. This valuable exposure to a rich variety of disciplines and ideas develops each student’s broad platform of knowledge, while honing critical skills in communication and reasoning. Students seeking degrees within the college choose from an extensive range of traditional liberal arts, applied professional and progressive interdisciplinary options, all tailored for today’s dynamic career landscape.
The distinguished faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences foster a progressive learning environment. Because these exceptional educators are also accomplished professionals in their fields, classroom instruction is complemented by their presence in community and cultural affairs. As a result, students develop a deep connection to civic involvement and are primed to put their knowledge and leadership into action.
College of Arts and Sciences events (lectures, gallery openings, panel discussions, film screenings, conferences, etc.) enrich our academic community and the surrounding communities we serve.

It was the first veto override of the current ongoing legislative session and an example of advocacy in action.
