As the largest academic unit at the University, we support numerous majors and minors, an MFA in Creative Writing, and the heart of the liberal education that SPU provides.
A liberal education is one that promotes liberty — the freedom of the mind and heart necessary for participation in a free society and global community, and essential for personal development. At Seattle Pacific, we encourage the intellectual exploration that such an education requires in an environment supportive of spiritual cultivation and the search for a life of service and meaning.
Within the College of Arts and Sciences, you can explore your creativity, learn about humanity's many ways of understanding itself and the natural world, and most importantly, be a part of a community of learners that includes both students and professors. All of this will prepare you for a lifetime of learning and successful entry into your career path.
I invite you to reach out to me, or any of the CAS faculty, with questions you might have about our programs or the education we provide.
