At UF, we take great pride in providing a strong liberal arts education that aims to help you develop skills and abilities that will serve you well in any profession and help you succeed in our twenty-first century global and digital world. Employers increasingly recognize that while employees can be taught the technical skills of a job, the "people" and communication skills that College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences majors possess are essential to the success of their organizations.
Whether you choose to major in history, psychology, theater, or any of our twenty-one degree programs, you will learn critical thinking skills, effective problem solving methods, strong analytical techniques, and creative processes. As a College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences major, you will cultivate a comprehension of various disciplines and diverse perspectives that will enhance your ability to communicate with culturally diverse communities. You will also benefit from being in small, interactive classes with qualified faculty who will teach you to discriminate and constructively challenge what you read, see, and hear. In the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, it is not only the knowledge you gain that is valuable, but also the higher order thinking abilities you develop that are essential to your future success.
I encourage you to stop by our offices if you have any questions or if you'd simply like to talk about what we do and why we do it. I look forward to meeting you.
