A liberal arts education preparing you for career success in a changing world.
The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) at the University of Michigan-Flint educates students far beyond their chosen major. Comprised of programs in humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and fine arts, CAS courses educate you for a life filled with change by teaching you the most important skill of all: how to keep on learning for yourself after you graduate.
With over 25 undergraduate possibilities ranging from biology to criminal justice and communication to psychology, as well as 29 graduate programs for students interested in furthering their education, the College of Arts and Sciences offer something for every student.
The University of Michigan-Flint's College of Arts and Sciences is the starting point for a successful future, whatever your chosen major. A liberal education gives you the means to test ideas, beliefs and facts as well as how to apply what you have learned. It exposes you to a variety of academic disciplines that will broaden and deepen your perspectives and enable you to continue the learning process as educated citizens.
Earning a liberal arts degree means flexibility for the future, for example, majoring in biology yet being able to get a job working for an advertising agency, a hospital or a pharmaceutical company. It means getting a degree in musical theatre and working as a politician or a music teacher, or being a history major and ending up as a corporate executive. A liberal arts education prepares you to be well versed in all trades instead of sticking you into one career path or one job. With technology and the economy ever changing, our career goals need to adapt to what is hot in the job market today and even more importantly, what will be in demand in the future.
