About the College
The mission of Tuskegee University’s largest college, the College of Arts and Sciences, is to address the core educational needs of every Tuskegee student. We realize that mission by building foundations for advanced study through research, teaching, and service. The College assists its varied student population in creating and discovering new knowledge through faculty leadership in the fine and performing arts, the humanities, the social sciences, the natural sciences, and mathematics. Faculty from our eight departments and two programs instruct students seeking advanced degrees and baccalaureates, as well as students from every part of the university taking required and elective courses in English, mathematics, sciences, and many other subjects.
The College is dedicated to the idea that a Golden Tiger must have operational literacy, mathematical and scientific skills necessary for a rapidly developing, interdependent, global community. We challenge our students to see beyond themselves and to question assumptions and prejudices, to be sensitive to the rights of others, and to engage other points of view. We seek for our students to comprehend, to learn, to think critically and not meekly surrender their right to independent thought. We value the reasoned use of analytical skills, creativity, and imagination that students will need to participate in and to lead an increasingly better educated work force. Academic research that supports and informs our teaching and service activities is at the heart of our mission and values.
The program options listed below equip students to engage fully their intellectual curiosity by providing a strong curricular base, excellent instruction, and a culture of scholarship. The College assists students in discovering and creating new knowledge, developing high-order intellectual and moral qualities, and becoming productive citizens of the world.
