The College of Arts & Sciences
There is simply no other place where students can study anything -- from plutonium to poetry, the College of Arts & Sciences is a great place to continue a lifelong love affair with your favorite subject!
The College of Arts and Sciences was established in 1883--the first college established--is the largest, and we think the most interesting of nine colleges at the University of North Dakota.
The College of Arts and Sciences dates from the founding of the University in 1883, and has had organic continuity from that date, in spite of some temporary changes in name and structure. In the Fall 2018 Brad Rundquist was named Interim Dean of the College.
We enroll all undergraduates who wish to complete studies for the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Music or Bachelor of Science degree with concentration in some substantive or applicative field of study within the traditionally broad spectrum of the liberal arts.
We currently enroll approximately 3,000 students in our 31 undergraduate majors, 15 master's programs, and 11 doctoral programs.
We have 19 departments which we organize into four divisions: fine arts, social sciences, humanities, and math-natural sciences.
