About the College of Arts and Sciences

About CAS

The depth of the College of Arts and Sciences’ curricula, together with the breadth of its General Education program, provide a gateway to countless vocations. Graduates from our program are critical thinkers, effective communicators, creators of beauty, and culturally competent individuals.

The College of Arts and Sciences at Seattle Pacific traces its roots to 1980, when Vice President of Academic Affairs David Dickerson created the Dean of Arts and Sciences position. Today the College is the largest academic unit on campus. 

Currently the college is under interim leadership from Dr. Andrew Ryder, Professor of Theatre Education and Director of General Education, and Dr. Rebekah Rice, Professor and Chair of Philosophy.
