Welcome

To the College of Liberal Arts

What can you do with a Liberal Arts degree?

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.


Symposium Postponed

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.
