The College has an impact, directly or indirectly, on millions of lives. It serves some 8,000 undergraduate and 1,200 graduate students each year, and provides 51 percent of all instruction offered at Carolina. It is in these core liberal arts classes that virtually all of the University’s 21,000-plus undergraduate students begin to hone the vital skills of critical thinking and effective communication that are cornerstones of a college education.
The College’s strong and diverse curriculum arms students with the skills and insights they need to understand the past and to flourish in the future. As its graduates move out into the world, the College also serves as a vital engine for economic growth, artistic expression, and social change.
Through the rich array of transformative experiences it provides, the College equips its students to transform the world around them. In the classroom and beyond—through study abroad, lecture series, internships and practica, research opportunities, and more—the College opens doors to the world for its students, so that they can receive the preparation they deserve as future leaders of our increasingly global society.
The dreams of today’s students will someday transform all of our lives. The College of Arts & Sciences is committed to encouraging its students to dream boldly and to providing students with the skills and intellectual resources they need to achieve their dreams.
