College of Liberal Arts

The College of Liberal Arts offers doctoral programs in anthropology, English, history, political science, clinical psychology, psychological and brain sciences, and sociology. Eight master of arts degrees along with an MFA in creative writing are also available. Ranging across the college’s two subdivisions of the humanities and social sciences, these programs are ably staffed by nationally recognized scholars. These faculty members, who have earned advanced degrees from many of the nation’s most prestigious universities, actively pursue research and creative activities that advance their professions and often benefit the larger community. These endeavors are especially important since graduate education requires an understanding of the methodology for producing knowledge as well as the mastery of bodies of information. Small classes and individual attention further enhance the learning experience of each of these programs. In short, prospective graduate students in the College of Liberal Arts may confidently expect to participate in programs characterized by rigorous intellectual pursuit and careful, conscientious instruction.
