Liberal Arts and Sciences. Education for Life.

The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) at the University of Michigan-Flint offers programs that will educate students far beyond their chosen majors. With over 25 undergraduate possibilities, and numerous graduate programs for students interested in furthering their education, the College of Arts and Sciences provides something for every student.

Comprised of programs in humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, interdisciplinary studies, performing, visual, and fine arts, and encompassing popular STEM offerings, CAS courses prepare students for a life filled with change by providing a broad knowledge base and lifelong learning strategies.

A liberal education encourages students to be well versed in a wide range of subjects whether they are focused on a single career path or building a foundation for the future. By imparting both critical and creative thinking skills, communication strategies, and intercultural and global understanding, we help students become the individuals sought by today’s employers and communities. With technology and the economy ever changing, students must be able to adapt to what is currently trending and, even more importantly, what will be in demand in the future—and with a degree from UM-Flint’s College of Arts and Sciences, they can.
