Why Arts and Science?

At Miami University's College of Arts and Science, you’ll get a broad and diverse education that offers the "best of both worlds" — opportunities and resources typically found at much larger universities in a more intimate, personalized, interactive environment. You’ll gain critical thinking and communication skills through our rich diversity of rigorous academic opportunities and experiences. You'll cultivate intellect and creativity as we work toward the common good. And you'll develop the key building blocks to a happy, successful career in our ever-changing, globally minded workforce.

Do More ...

As an undergraduate in the College of Arts and Science, you will get the personal attention and resources other universities reserve for their graduate students.

Our professors will encourage you to take an active role in their research teams, where you'll make real contributions and learn valuable skills. You may even present the results of your research at major conferences and see your work published in scholarly journals. These pre-professional experiences will give you a strong advantage for professional or graduate school acceptance as well as rich and rewarding careers.

See More ...

Real-world experience doesn’t happen in just any classroom. You have to see the pressing issues firsthand before you can make solid contributions.

Across a variety of CAS research centers, you will have opportunities to work side-by-side with professors, community leaders, and industry experts to help actually implement solutions to today’s pressing issues. And our popular “Inside” study away workshops in Hollywood, Washington, New York, London, and more will take you behind the scenes in close contact with successful Miami alumni.

Be More ...

Whatever your passion, customize your education to match your vision. Add a second major or a co-major. Explore a minor or two. It’s your education. We’re just the guide on your path to success.

Our expert academic advising staff and professors will work with you to achieve the goals that are uniquely you. We will help you navigate your chosen career field and academic interests via 11 CAS theme areas and nine overall career clusters where you focus on your professional interests while exploring similar careers within broad industry categories.
