About the College of Arts and Sciences

Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences at Abilene Christian University, the largest college at ACU with approximately 2,000 majors. More than 130 full-time and 40-50 part-time faculty members challenge students through 45 undergraduate and 9 graduate degree programs in 15 academic departments.

The mission of the College of Arts and Sciences is to educate students for worldwide Christian service and leadership through programs of study and other learning experiences that blend a liberal arts education with professional and career education. The college offers a broad spectrum of programs in the arts, humanities, mathematics, and behavioral and natural sciences.  Every student at ACU, regardless of major, passes through the College of Arts and Sciences because most of the university's core curriculum is housed in the college.

Throughout ACU's history, arts and sciences have played an important role in the University's commitment to educate the whole person. While departments and degree plans have changed through the years, that commitment remains unchanged.
