Saint Leo's College of Arts & Sciences offers students a broad education that lays a durable foundation for critical and independent thinking. The essential spirit of the liberal arts—namely, the liberation of the mind, and acquisition of habits and values that lead to truth—animates the School's curricula and programs.
The College of Arts & Sciences provides coherence and unity to the entire University curriculum, and ensures depth and diversity in its own areas of study.
For our students, learning takes place in and out of the classroom. Students travel to France, Italy and beyond through our cultural immersion courses. They research plant species while trekking through the Peruvian Amazon and kayaking through the Florida mangrove swamps. They attend film screenings, poetry readings and professional development events sponsored by the College. They contribute to our literary magazine Sandhill Review and to Empiricus: The Sunshine Journal for Collaborative Undergraduate Research, created to bring together scholarly inquiry across the School's disciplines.
With professors in fields from biology to sociology, the College supports 34 programs, and provides educational experiences to more than 3,000 students at Education Centers in seven states, and worldwide through Saint Leo's online degree programs.
