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 is 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, Criminal Justice, English, History, Liberal Studies, Psychology, and Sociology, and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees in Biology and Psychology. The college hosts two associate degrees: an Associates in General Studies (A.G.S.) and an Associates of Applied Science (A.A.S.) in Criminal Justice.

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