School of Arts & Sciences

Welcome to the School of Arts & Sciences

Welcome to the School of Arts and Sciences, the intellectual heart of Oakwood University and the university’s largest and most diverse School. We offer a variety of academic choices and multiple opportunities for success. As the academic core of Oakwood, the School of Arts and Sciences fosters educational excellence, intellectual inquiry, discovery and unmatched access through our unique collection of programs in the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities.

With over six hundred select students majoring and minoring in the arts and sciences, and award winning faculty in seven academic departments, the college brims with intellectual and creative energy.

From a first year student’s first days all the way through to graduation, the arts and sciences offer plenty to engage the curious, active mind. Classes, research, study abroad, visiting scholars, artists and performances, internships, experiments for kids, service to the community—there is always an exciting opportunity, project, or event. We believe strongly in the University motto of “entering to learn and departing to serve,” and we are in a unique position to fulfill that for the Oakwood student. Join us and start your journey today!

– DEAN, Dr. Kenneth Lai Hing
