Welcome to the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at UMBC!

From visual arts to economics to psychology, from ancient studies to media & communication studies, and from Asian Studies to American Studies, our College spans the disciplines, the centuries, and the globe. True to the liberal arts mission, we ask questions fundamental to human existence: Who are we? Where have we been? What matters? Through diverse, challenging programs of study, with countless opportunities for research, creative work, internships, and other co-curricular activities, our students develop skills and knowledge that prepare them for a variety of careers and a lifetime of thoughtful citizenship and leadership in a complex world.
