The School of Arts & Sciences provides a comprehensive education in a broad range of subjects to prepare students to become engaged members of civil society, lifelong learners, and successful professionals. From collaborative classes led by our expert faculty members to opportunities in Philadelphia and abroad, an education in the Arts & Sciences will help you develop the skills employers seek so you can make a good living, lead a good life, and serve the common good.
Your experience will be shaped by more than just your classes at La Salle. Keeping with Lasallian tradition, we believe that all knowledge is practical and empowering and provide learning opportunities that extend beyond your classes and into the city of Philadelphia and abroad.
Being located in the 6th largest city in the U.S., students can gain hands-on work experiences with corporations, nonprofits, cultural institutions, and leading media outlets in Philadelphia that will help shape their studies and better prepare them to enter the workforce upon graduating.
Beyond the benefit of small class sizes, our faculty collaborate with students to innovate and find solutions to complex problems. Many Arts and Sciences students participate in research with faculty in libraries and labs, gaining valuable mentorship from our passionate faculty members.
Our study abroad programs offered through Arcadia Abroad allow students to develop global mindsets and cross-cultural connections, expanding their viewpoints and enriching their academic experience to become global citizens and changemakers.
As a Lasallian Institution, we’re called to stand in solidarity with those who are impoverished and marginalized and to actively respond to injustices with compassion. As an Explorer, you can participate in a number of community service and immersion experiences that promote reflection and introspection, while fostering a supportive and inclusive community on and off campus.
