In a world of colleges, you have the giant state schools and the pocket-sized private ones. And then you have Xavier, a Jesuit, Catholic, liberal arts college with about 7,000 students. It's large enough to offer top facilities and enriching opportunities, but small enough that students get the personal attention they need to thrive. Our campus is globally connected, but feels like a family. We consider it the perfect balance.
The College of Arts and Sciences is the oldest and largest college at Xavier University. The college provides excellent liberal arts education in the Jesuit tradition that prepares students for careers, professional or graduate school, and life in a global society. Explore our 50+ majors and programs.
The College of Arts and Sciences challenges students to develop an integrated understanding of humanity, the world, and God by pursuing the questions raised in Xavier's core and departmental curricula.
How do identity, location, culture, and history shape our views of ourselves, of others, and of our world?
What are the root causes of injustice, and how might we challenge unjust distributions of power?
Through such core questions and through its programs of study in the liberal arts, the College aspires to liberate students by enabling them to broaden their minds, to seek the truth, and to meet the challenges of their time.
