Abstract

The College of Arts and Sciences offers programs in the arts, humanities, social and behavioral sciences, and natural sciences. This collection is composed of correspondence, publications and various records generated by the Office of the Dean of College of Arts and Sciences. Included are newsletters, brochures, records and correspondence.

Historical Note

The College of Arts and Sciences was initially known as the General Sciences Course. Beginning in 1884, a student could obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in science and the arts by taking courses (not majors) in English & rhetoric, Latin, French, German, history, philosophy, physical science, mineralogy and geology, biological science, metallurgy, mathematics, and music. There were no departmental administrators or dean until 1924, when the General Science Division was formed. By 1953, the Division added applied arts to the title. After the college became a university, the Division of Science and Applied Arts changed its name to the College of Arts and Science.

The College of Arts and Sciences serves two significant functions within the university. It provides instruction in the university core requirement for a liberal education as well as education in specific disciplines.

The fifteen departments in the College of Arts and Sciences offer major and/or minor programs leading to one of three undergraduate degrees. In addition, five departments in other colleges offer majors and/or minors in programs administered through the College of Arts and Sciences.

Contents Note

This collection is composed of correspondence, publications, and various records generated by the college's administrative offices. Included are bulletins, brochures, and announcements, and materials from individuals or committees, which relate to the administration of the college. The bulk of the material consists of newsletters.
