College of Liberal Arts


Teresa Winterhalter, Interim Dean

Philosophy and Goals

The College of Liberal Arts provides students with the time-tested skills, aptitudes, and discipline that have served as the hallmark of the Bachelor’s degree for centuries. Its programs of study cultivate the arts of persuasive communication, critical analysis, empirical and theoretical reasoning, and disciplined reflection that distinguishes its graduates as professional and civic leaders. At the forefront of Liberal Arts education for the twenty-first century, the College offers a rich array of courses in diverse subjects such as: Economics, Finance, Criminal Justice, Politics and Law, History, Languages and Literatures, Communication, Art, Music, and Theatre – just to name a few.  

Students in the College engage in a rigorous and demanding curriculum directed toward providing them with the academic grounding, technical competencies, and intellectual perspectives necessary to succeed in in a global society that requires flexibility, adaptability, and continued learning. Students enjoy extended opportunities to engage personally with the College’s talented faculty who, in addition to being dedicated classroom teachers, are recognized expert scholars in their disciplines as well, Easily accessible opportunities to study the arts, humanities, and social sciences beyond the classroom exists through internships, performances, exhibitions, undergraduate research experiences, and study abroad programs.

The College also contributes substantially to delivering instruction in USG Core Courses and Armstrong’s First Year Experience and Honor’s Programs and serves as a cultural forum for the Savannah community. Both faculty and students contribute valuable knowledge, skills, and resources to the community and the region through their scholarship.

Organization, Degrees, Certificates, and Minors

The faculty of the College of Liberal Arts are organized into five departments: Art, Music, and Theatre; Criminal Justice, Social, and Political Science; Economics; History; Languages, Literature, and Philosophy. Additionally, the Military Science and Liberal Studies programs are part of the College, along with two interdisciplinary majors (Bachelor of Arts in Gender Studies, Bachelor of Liberal Studies) and several interdisciplinary minors and certificates.
