Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences!

As the largest and most academically diverse college at UO, the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) is an ideal place to explore. Cutting-edge researchers and exemplary instructors will help you navigate your intellectual journey through the liberal arts. You will grapple with some of society’s most pressing questions, gaining content knowledge, transferrable skills, and hands-on experience along the way. Whether you are among the 60% of students who pursue a major in CAS, or if you find your way to us through core education classes (like writing or math) you will join a vibrant community of inquiry – faculty, staff, and students united in their effort to push the boundaries of knowledge about the world. In CAS, we are dedicated to ensuring that our graduates will leave UO in four years having found their purpose and prepared to affect positive change in the world.
