"Rockhurst provides a transformative experience that helps shape the future path of their lives." – Jennifer Friend, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Rockhurst University.
The College of Arts and Sciences offers a wide variety of degree programs, including, but not limited to:
Students who are here at Rockhurst have a transformative experience while they're at Rockhurst that, in many ways, helps shape the future path of their life.
The College of Arts and Sciences has a variety of programs in natural sciences, in the humanities, in philosophy and theology and religious studies. They'll have experiences with art and literature and history. And we also are home to the School of Education.
We have undergraduate research experiences in a variety of subject areas. So if it's a science laboratory setting, they are hands on, working with the equipment, they are doing genetics experiments with fruit flies. The students themselves work under the guidance of a faculty member, but they are definitely part of that research team.
At Rockhurst, we are a smaller university, and so our faculty have longstanding relationships with each other that cross disciplinary boundaries, and then our students get to benefit from that by seeing how the curriculum in their different classes ties together to create a student who really has a unique experience at Rockhurst.
