Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences

At Pittsburg State University, we offer student centered academic programs taught by highly qualified faculty in a wide variety of disciplines. Teaching is the primary emphasis on our campus, and our faculty pride themselves on providing exciting courses using contemporary teaching approaches while giving personal attention to students.  We strive to keep class size small enough to allow meaningful interaction with students.

Our faculty are also scholars, researchers, and experts in their disciplines, giving students exposure to the most current knowledge and techniques. Students graduating from these programs are well prepared for employment or for further, more advanced study in either graduate or professional school.

The College is composed of thirteen departments. Most College of Arts and Sciences departments offer a choice of majors or emphases, including the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of Science in Education degrees.  Many of our departments also offer either the Master of Arts or Master of Science degree. We also offer four interdisciplinary programs.
