College of Liberal Arts & Sciences

Dean's Welcome

Scott Furlong

Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) at UW-Green Bay! Our goal is to provide you with a broad liberal arts education that prepares you for your career and life goals upon graduation.

College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will provide you with the vast majority of your general education courses throughout your career. I hope you take some time during your academic career to explore some courses outside your chosen field of study. You might just find a new interest that you will want to pursue.

CLAS offers over 30 major and minor programs. UW-Green Bay believes strongly in the idea of an interdisciplinary problem-focused education, and you will receive such an education regardless of your chosen field of study. We are also the home of a number of research centers and the national honor societies of Phi Eta Sigma (first year national honor society) and Phi Kappa Phi (national academic honor society)

I am proud to say that we also have a number of nationally and internationally renowned scholars within CLAS. These are people that are writing books and producing scholarship that are being used at colleges and universities across the nation. Your added benefit is that you will be taking classes from these professors.

Our faculty believe strongly in the student experience and promoting learning, and CLAS has a number of teaching award winning faculty.

As you navigate this site, I hope you will recognize the high level of quality offered by the CLAS programs. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Scott Furlong
Dean, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
