Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences

Our nearly 30 majors in the College of Arts and Sciences prepare graduates for leadership roles in local, national, and global communities. Distinctive about the University of Mary Washington is its emphasis on meeting the learning needs of undergraduates through innovative teaching, personalized advisement, and strong support for undergraduate research and active learning. We are proud of our historic Honor Code, which represents our long term commitment to building a strong community. Our relatively small size ensures that every student gains significant attention and mentoring from our award winning faculty. Few colleges of our size offer the range of programs we sponsor, from English to Arabic, Computer Science to Environmental Science, and from Women’s and Gender Studies to Historic Preservation.
