Message from the Dean

Doreen TurnboWelcome to Wilmington University College of Arts & Sciences!

Our College provides an Associate's degree in Liberal Studies for those students who are unsure of their long-term educational plans, plus three Bachelor's degrees. The Bachelor’s in Liberal Studies is perfect for those individuals with a minimum of 30 transfer credits who are seeking to change their career focus or maximize their transfer credits in preparation for a Master's degree. Our Bachelor of Science in Communication is a perfect degree for the 21st century job market. It offers a choice of two concentrations, one in Integrated Marketing and a second in Media Communications.

The Bachelor’s in Environmental Science and Policy is classified as a STEM program, drawing undergraduate course offerings from the College of Arts and Sciences, as well as the Colleges of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Technology, and Business. The expertise to preserve and protect our very limited and fragile natural resources is expected to be a continuously valuable skillset.

The primary task of our College is to support the undergraduate degree programs across the University through general education course offerings. That means all English, math, science, history, and humanity (ART, MUS, LIT, HUM, PHI, Foreign Language) courses are managed through the College of Arts & Sciences. Our College is always looking for new and creative ways to enhance these required courses. These types of courses provide the foundation for whatever undergraduate degree you are pursuing. They not only enrich your learning but help you to develop the skills you will need for the courses in your major.

The full-time faculty within the College of Arts & Sciences and our many adjunct instructors, who are professionals in their fields, are committed to academic excellence and are eager to provide a rich educational environment for students.

Whether you are a new student or an experienced WU student, we wish you the best in your academic and personal goals. Wilmington University is a great place to be and the College of Arts & Sciences is thrilled that you have chosen WU as a step into your future.
