Collection Historical Note

The College of Arts and Sciences was created in 1966 when the organizational structure of the university was reorganized into three colleges: College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, College of Education, and College of Applied Sciences and Technology.  The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences encompassed the departments of biological sciences, English, foreign languages, geography, library sciences, mathematics, speech, chemistry, physics, history, economics, political science, and sociology-anthropology.  The "liberal" was dropped from the college title shortly after to ensure that the sciences would not be viewed as not liberal.  Today, the college provides education in all of the above departments and has added departments in philosophy, politics and government, psychology, and social work.  Other departments have expanded such as geography adding geology and foreign languages to include the literature and culture of other countries.  The college also offers interdisciplinary programs in Latin American and Latino/a studies and women's and gender studies.  The College of Arts and Sciences provides undergraduate, graduate, and post graduate degrees in a variety of subjects.
