The College of the Liberal Arts at Penn State is one of the premier institutions in the world to study and work in the liberal arts disciplines. We offer outstanding programs in fields ranging from anthropology (ranked number one nationally) to women's studies, with an impressive variety of other humanities, life, and social science fields to choose from. On campus, we offer forty-seven undergraduate majors and graduate work in twenty-one fields. Online, we offer fifteen bachelor's, masters, and associate degrees. Our strategic plan emphasizes national leadership in research and graduate education and our mission of providing the Liberal Arts Edge to our undergraduates: a fine traditional liberal arts education combined with digital fluency, global awareness, and assistance in making the transition from the classroom to a career.
