The College of Arts and Sciences is a diverse community of exceptional scholars working together toward the common goal of excellence in the pursuit of knowledge, both for its own sake and in service to society.
The College is the University’s largest academic unit and provides the liberal arts foundation for a UAlbany education. In our programs, students explore big ideas and timely, important problems; unleash their creativity and develop their aesthetic sensibility; investigate and analyze the natural world; and develop the flexible intellect required to be engaged local and global citizens.
As the intellectual hub of a major research university, the College of Arts and Sciences at the University at Albany is committed to supporting a talented and diverse student body and faculty in their pursuit of advancing knowledge, discovery and scholarship. Our scientists, researchers, scholars, clinicians, authors, artists and musicians actively produce original and ground-breaking work in their respective fields. As a public institution, we are also dedicated to engaging our regional, national and global communities in ways that benefit society and the academic enterprise.
