With a 10:1 student-faculty ratio, small classes and individualized learning opportunities, we put students at the center of all our decisions and events.

We blend the liberal arts with pre-professional courses and hands-on learning to prepare you for careers in the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. You’ll learn through small, engaging classes and relationships with faculty mentors; hone your skills to solve problems; and learn to use creativity and critical thinking to make informed decisions.

Thank you for considering Shenandoah University’s College of Arts & Sciences. Our mission is to prepare individuals to be critical, reflective thinkers; lifelong learners; and ethical, compassionate citizens who are committed to making responsible contributions within a community, a nation, and the world. Our major, minor and certificate programs emphasize the knowledge, critical thinking, communication, technology and information literacy skills that prepare our graduates for ever-changing career and life choices.

I’m proud of the successes our graduates enjoy at graduate schools around the country and the leadership they provide in their communities. A liberal arts education continues to be the best preparation for the future.
