Whether you want to make a difference in your community, explore other cultures, or discover solutions to global and community issues, we have the place for you and the faculty to help guide you. Our faculty members are outstanding in their fields and serve as mentors to our students.

In addition to classroom instruction, you’ll have opportunities to select from learning in research laboratories, schools, community organizations, government offices, libraries, or historical sites, and through hands-on field assignments, internships, service-learning projects or study abroad programs.

Our graduates gain skills they can apply to a diverse set of careers and graduate degrees. Our alums are influencers in their fields and include teachers, lawyers, politicians, social workers, counselors, writers, curators, researchers and consultants.

Our students learn to think critically, communicate clearly and solve complex problems—skills that will prepare you for careers, leadership and engaged citizenship. I’m excited to have you join their ranks.
