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.

Congratulations to the Class of 2020!

The faculty and staff of the College of Liberal Arts wish to congratulate the members of the Class of 2020. We are so proud of you. Not only have you achieved something extraordinary by completing your undergraduate degree programs, you have done it under difficult circumstances in uncertain times. You are to be commended for your determination.

You join a select group who can call themselves alumni of the University of Central Oklahoma and we hope you will remember your days at UCO fondly.

You are Bronchos forever!
