The College of Arts and Sciences reflects the diversity you find at GSU, and then some.
Not only do you find students of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities, but you find them pursuing majors and minors as varied as they are: from art to criminal justice, from communication to math and science. But no matter which major they pursue, you’ll find GSU students in classes led by professors who are stars in their fields, as equally committed to research as they are to teaching.
The College of Arts and Sciences offers a broad range of undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs to give you a strong foundation built with hands-on experience and with the latest technology. CAS programs cultivate creative expression and prepare you to succeed in diverse environments. We even have a terminal degree program in the applied arts of digital imaging and media production.
The College of Arts and Sciences' mission is to teach theoretical and applied knowledge and to cultivate habits of mind, communication skills, and artistic vision and expression befitting advanced learning. CAS seeks to empower students to join and strengthen the wider community to become change agents within a global culture; to serve as leaders in their respective disciplines and professions and to live as informed, responsible citizens.
