University of Connecticut

College of Liberal Arts & Sciences


The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences includes 24 departments across the humanities, sciences, and social sciences, as well as centers, institutes, and interdisciplinary working groups that break down disciplinary boundaries, generate unexpected insights and innovative ideas, and create new fields of inquiry. The College had more than $43 million dollars of research expenditures in 2013, with significant external funding across the behavioral, life, environmental, and physical sciences. The College has enhanced its life and physical science faculty in the areas of genetics and genomics to collaborate with the UConn Health Center and The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine facilities in Farmington. The College has been at the forefront of environmental research, teaching, and outreach, with strong expertise in the natural and social sciences as well as ongoing interdisciplinary research initiatives related to environmental sustainability, biodiversity, and global environmental change. With ongoing interdisciplinary work on cognitive science between philosophers, linguists, behavioral scientists, and neurobiologists, we have a unique capacity for understanding language and the human mind. The College is the University's home for research in the humanities, and includes strong programs in history, including early American and Latin American history, American and English literature, medieval studies, and world languages and culture. The College also supports a collection of programs and institutes focusing on race and gender with a vision of studying the relevant regions of the world and the populations from those regions as they have migrated across the globe.
