Arts & Sciences Ampersand Week

Celebrate the liberal arts with Arts & Sciences first ever Ampersand Week! The week's line up includes a live performance by Radiolab hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich.

On Friday, February 27 at 12:00 pm an ArtSci alumni panel will discuss "How the Liberal Arts Shaped My Career".The alums will share their story on how a liberal arts degree not only shaped their career, but their personal identity.  You will see how degree doesn’t always equal a career and that your path may vary.  This is a great opportunity to explore majors and ask questions of ArtSci alumni while enjoying some snacks.

Panelists include:
- Jack Grone, Director and SVP of Communications, Wells Fargo Advisors
- Eric Hamblett, Co-founder, Bazaarboy
- Candice Jones, Director of the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice

PULSE Survey for Undergraduates

The PULSE (Perceptions of Undergraduate Life and Student Experiences) survey is a brief on-line questionnaire designed to help faculty and administrators better understand how to strengthen the student experience at Washington University.

An email with a unique link was sent to you by Chancellor Wrighton on Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015.

Participation in the WU PULSE is voluntary and your responses will be kept completely confidential. Analyses of the data will not be reported in any form that would identify an individual.

Our Mission

Jennifer R. Smith
Dean of the College

The College of Arts & Sciences celebrates the joy of discovery and the exercise of critical thought in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.

Advancing the values of a liberal arts education, we affirm that a full life is an intellectual, moral, and creative endeavor of meaning and purpose. Our goal is to develop our students by fostering resolve and adaptability, self-reliance and collaborative effort, humility and courage, a sense of tradition and a spirit of innovation.

We strive to create and maintain a diverse, supportive, and respectful collegiate community by encouraging lasting connections among students, faculty, and staff.  Together, committed to both leadership and service, we work each day to further our pursuit of strength through truth--per veritatem vis.
