College of Liberal Arts
The College of Liberal Arts includes the departments of English; History and Geography; Mass Communication; Humanities and Philosophy; Political Science; Modern Languages; Sociology, Gerontology, and Substance Abuse Studies; and the School of Criminal Justice.
The college offers more than two dozen undergraduate programs as well as minors and graduate degrees. Every student who begins their educational journey at UCO will take numerous courses in the College of Liberal Arts before a degree is granted.
As such, it is the mission of every member of the College of Liberal Arts to challenge students to speak clearly, write well, appreciate difference, ask questions, act ethically, participate, value the past, encounter the present, and create the future.
The University of Central Oklahoma's College of Liberal Arts Annual Student Symposium, originally scheduled for April 1, has been postponed. The event has not been rescheduled, but the College of Liberal Arts will announce a new date here and on social media when it is determined.
