General Statement

The 18 departments and more than 130 academic programs in the College of Arts and Sciences offers students the opportunity to study an extraordinarily wide range of subjects across the natural sciences, humanities, mathematics, social sciences, languages, and life sciences. The vast majority of the teaching for the Texas A&M Core Curriculum takes place in Arts and Sciences, which is truly the academic heart of the university. 

In the College of Arts and Sciences you will have the opportunity to study with a distinguished faculty, including a Nobel Prize-winner, many recipients of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Council of Learned Societies as well as multiple members of the National Academy of Sciences. Our faculty are highly successful in securing external research funding and students will benefit from an extraordinary array of research infrastructure, ranging from the Cyclotron Institute to the Texas Research Data Center, a collaboration with the U.S. Census Bureau. 

The degrees offered in the College of Arts and Sciences include BA, BS, MA, MS, and PhD, in addition to a wide range of minors and certificates, both graduate and undergraduate.
