"Learning that lasts a lifetime"

As the oldest and largest liberal arts college in South Carolina, the College of Liberal Arts is at the intellectual core of the University of South Carolina. As the center of a large comprehensive institution dedicated to teaching, research, and public service, the College has a number of important responsibilities.

The undergraduate program strives to provide the highest quality of learning opportunities leading to degrees in the humanities, fine arts, social and behavioral sciences. A key goal of the undergraduate program is to help students develop the ability to think, communicate, solve problems, respond to ideas, and interpret human experience. In addition, the College enlarges the creative and intellectual capacities, as well as the historical and ethical perspectives, in our students and in the community at large.

The College also focuses on its graduate programs which support and encourage the development of intellectual leadership, advanced and innovative research and excellence in performance and teaching. The graduate program serves as an active intellectual, cultural, and artistic resource for the state, the region, and the nation. [continue]
