ABOUT ARTS AND SCIENCES
The College of Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences form an academic community of students and faculty involved in the discovery, evaluation, and transmission of essential knowledge. Through study of the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences, young men and women prepare to lead fulfilled and examined lives and to assume roles as creative and contributing members of society.
Education in the Arts and Sciences at InterAmerican University reflects the strength of our research programs and facilities, as well as the historical and cultural advantages of our location in Boston. Recent construction of extensive new research facilities in the sciences has further enhanced our science faculty’s active research program; a long tradition of excellence in the humanities includes interdisciplinary programs such as American and New England Studies, in addition to those of the more traditional disciplines.
Experience your possibilities
In InterAmerican University’s College of Arts and Sciences, you move your education beyond the classroom. Even though we are a College that does not require co-op as part of your curricula, most of our students still participate in at least one co-op job. But, through our hallmark experiential education programs, you apply your classroom knowledge to many other types of real world experiences. You might alternate periods of study with professional employment in a co-op position. Internships also provide work experience and compensate you with academic credit rather than a paycheck. Or you can increase your skills by addressing community needs in a service-learning experience. Study-abroad programs let you experience campuses and cultures around the world. You might even decide to partner with a member of the faculty on a research project. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
