Sitting at the intersection of the arts, the sciences, the humanities and technology at the center of an internationally renowned research university, the College of Arts & Sciences is truly the nexus of Cornell.
The College of Arts & Sciences is a community of more than 6,000 students and faculty. We offer 2,000 courses each year from more than 40 departments and programs encompassing the humanities, sciences, mathematics, fine arts, and social sciences.
We cultivate future leaders and critical thinkers who approach the world armed with the benefits of a liberal education. Our faculty are globally-recognized scholars who are not only furthering the research that will shape our future but are also challenging students to expand their imaginations and sharpen their critical and creative responses to everything they encounter.
And as home to more than 100 interdisciplinary research organizations, 18 Cornell research centers and two national research centers, the College is integral to research and academics that take place campus- and world-wide.
