Bucknell's College of Arts & Sciences is one of the largest and most diverse of the top-ranked national liberal arts colleges. The College provides a strong liberal arts base — including both breadth of learning and depth of specialization — for 2,838 Arts and Sciences students. In addition, the College of Arts & Sciences provides the basic mathematics, science, and liberal arts courses for students in the College of Engineering.
The College comprises the three traditional liberal arts divisions: arts and humanities; social sciences; and natural sciences and mathematics. Currently part of the College, the School of Management will become the College of Management in fall of 2017.
Over 290 faculty members in 31 departments and interdisciplinary programs offer 47 majors and 62 minors to Arts & Sciences students.
Degrees in the College include: the traditional Bachelor of Arts degree; choice of a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in the natural sciences, mathematics, and computer science; and professional degrees in music, education, and management and accounting.
In the College of Arts & Sciences, we have designed a College Core Curriculum that:
Students can integrate a variety of interests through the individual Interdepartmental Major or the broad College Major, or by combining a major with a minor or with another academic program-such as the Institute for Leadership in Technology and Management.
Students in the College benefit from attention to their intellectual development through the College Core Curriculum and disciplinary courses, through the University Writing Program, and through opportunities for independent study and Undergraduate Research.
Select your intended major within the College of Arts & Sciences. If you have not decided which major to pursue, select "Undecided Arts & Sciences" within the College of Arts & Sciences. Due to extremely limited space, there will be few if any opportunities for Arts & Science students to transfer into the Colleges of Management or Engineering.
