College of Arts and Sciences: A Message from the Dean
Welcome to the College of Arts & Sciences at Shippensburg
University. Here you will find a range of majors and minors that almost
certainly pleases every interest, and a superb faculty with the expertise to
support those programs.
Our College is founded upon the principle that a high-quality, professional
education within a major, when combined with a minor emphasis, and a broadly
based general educational experience, provides a firm foundation upon which to
build a productive and enriched life and career pathway.
Because of the nature of the disciplines comprising the College, we also
provide excellent development of critical thinking, problem solving and
communication skills – a set of “soft-skills” that, when combined with
disciplinary knowledge, is highly valued by employers, graduate schools, and
A College of Arts & Sciences degree sets the
stage for a productive life as a professional in the workplace, as a citizen of
the United States and the world, and as a fulfilled individual. Please
browse through our webpages and visit our campus. You will be amazed at the
opportunities you will find.
Dr. James H. Mike, Dean
