Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences!

Arts and Sciences is the heart of Jacksonville University.  The College includes all of the areas considered for centuries to be important for an educated population. Science and Mathematics, Social Sciences, Humanities and Education including Wilma's Little People School along with the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) are all part of the College of Arts and Sciences.  Majoring and minoring in fields represented in the college can prepare you for graduate or professional school or for a career.
