Mission Statement


The Colleges of Letters, Arts, and Science (CLAS) is the center of Multidisciplinary teaching and learning at the University of Arizona.

It is a collaborative effort of four colleges: Fine Arts, Humanities, Science, and Social and Behavioral Sciences.

Students seeking to explore multidisciplinary, global, and pre-professional educational opportunities at the University of Arizona will find the perfect home in CLAS, which provides cutting-edge undergraduate degrees as well as a range of advising services.

CLAS is training the next generation of undergraduate students by drawing on the strengths of each of the four colleges and the multidisciplinary ethos of our larger collaborative effort.

As the University of Arizona continues to expand its multidisciplinary efforts and its global reach, CLAS will adapt its offerings to meet the needs of the 21st century student.
