The College of Arts and Sciences is the academic heart of the University of Oregon. It provides a nucleus of liberal arts and sciences studies for the entire university, with more than 50 undergraduate majors and 23 Ph.D. programs.
The departments and programs of the Humanities Division are committed to the study of human meaning as it is expressed in diverse languages, explained in diverse literatures, and reflected upon from diverse philosophical and religious perspectives.
Our science departments are committed to creating and disseminating new knowledge in their fields by combining research and teaching.
Social sciences provide an analytical approach to society’s problems. As a result, faculty and students in the social sciences often focus on complex and intersectional issues such as racism, international conflict and war, climate change, and poverty.
