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 Deadline Extended to Feb. 29

The University of Central Oklahoma's College of Liberal Arts Annual Student Symposium will be held on April 1, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will offer students the opportunity to present their exemplary writing, research, and to participate in other academic and creative activities. Classes in the College of Liberal Arts are redirected during the event to allow students to participate and to give classmates the chance to experience the scholarly and creative work of their fellow students. 

Liberal arts students from any of Oklahoma’s community colleges are also welcome to submit proposals.
