In the College of Arts and Sciences, our passion drives discovery and creative activity. Our research and teaching engage multiple disciplines, foster many different ways of perceiving our surroundings, and pursue multiple paths for exploring the world. We push ourselves and our students to think deeply and broadly—to integrate ideas from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences—in ways that lead to innovation and prepare us for the challenges that tomorrow will bring. Together, we cherish the diversity of people, cultures, and ideas in Nebraska and throughout our interdependent world.

- Employers like liberal arts graduates because they have the skills necessary to adapt in a changing workplace.
- Your degree remains valuable as your interests and experience—and the job market—change.
- Liberal arts graduates understand problems, generate solutions, and communicate them.
- An undergraduate liberal arts background prepares you for a diverse field of graduate studies.
