Why Pursue Studies in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences?
A Welcome from the Dean
Pursuing a degree in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at SUNY Oswego combines the best of an ancient tradition of learning with the knowledge and skills required for success in the 21st century. The liberal arts denote an approach to education that hails from antiquity and prioritizes those areas of learning that are essential to full engagement in civic life. These areas of learning are no less salient today, and our graduates must be prepared to meet the challenges and expectations of a fully globalized civil society and workforce.
To achieve that end, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers strong degree programs in traditional fields of inquiry across the humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields. New and renovated facilities include our Archaeological and Forensic Research labs in Mahar Hall, the Rice Creek Field Station, and the Shineman Center for Science, Engineering, and Innovation. We also pride ourselves on our innovative and constantly expanding interdisciplinary programs of study, supported by the Interdisciplinary Programs and Activities Center (IPAC) and faculty across the College. We encourage student opportunities to partner with peers in innovative ways, building collaborations between the performing arts and the sciences, for example, since it will take harnessing all of our combined efforts to address the big challenges of the future.
The founder of our institution, Edward Austin Sheldon, advocated "learning by doing," and this is still a core value of ours as well. Students in the Liberal Arts and Sciences apply their learning through Challenge Grants, which fund faculty-student research collaborations; Scholarly and Creative Activities Grants available through the Office of Research and Individualized Student Experiences (RISE); the Global Laboratories program, which sends students to study in research laboratories in countries such as Brazil, India, and Korea; and our GetGo! Global Experience Travel Grants from Oswego, which enable our students to travel abroad in non-English speaking countries around the world.
We provide our students with many opportunities to develop the transferable skills in demand from today's most innovative employers, such as strong oral, written and digital communication, adaptive learning, and the ability to collaborate to solve complex and shifting problems in their chosen fields. These combined experiences give them the 21st century skills and literacies they need to succeed in their first jobs, but also in their second or third positions, and, just as crucially, give them the knowledge they need to function as engaged citizens in a diverse and changing world.
