The college consists of the dean, four associate deans, one assistant dean, and five support staff; 441 full-time faculty, approximately 292 part-time faculty, and 75 staff and academic professionals in twenty-two departments, three programs (Pre-Engineering, Graduate Liberal Studies, and Interdisciplinary Studies), and a center (Gender Studies and Research Center). CAS offers 43 undergraduate degree programs, 60 minors, 12 pre-professional programs, 25 master’s degree programs, and two doctoral programs.
