College of Arts & Sciences

PURPOSE

The Suomi College of Arts and Sciences (SCAS) provides academic programs that prepare students to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world. SCAS programs stimulate curiosity, exercise critical thinking, hone communication skills, and promote active citizenship. Faculty within the College are committed to helping students succeed in their chosen disciplines. Students are prepared for graduate programs, and for careers that demand critical thinking and excellent written and oral communication skills.

SCAS offers Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degrees in Biology, Communication, Criminal Justice, English, History, Liberal Studies, Philosophy, Psychology, and Sociology. The college hosts two associate degree programs: an associate degree in General Studies (AGS), including English as a Second Language (ESL) certificate program, and associate of applied science (A.A.S.) in Criminal Justice.

Each of the SCAS four-year Bachelor of Arts degree programs requires students to earn a minimum grade of “C-” for each course taken as part of the major.
