Description of College/Department/Program/Division/Unit

The College of Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities ( CASSH ) includes departments and programs in the humanities, social sciences and interdisciplinary studies, as well departments in the School of Visual and Performing Arts ( VPA ). CASSH / VPA continues the established liberal studies tradition of providing curricula leading to the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degree.

CASSH / VPA is dedicated to providing quality innovative instruction and creative learning experiences which prepares students for future careers and education. More broadly, such learning allows students to continue to develop meaningful, responsible lives. Graduates of the college will have developed the ability to communicate effectively, to think critically, to conduct sound research, to understand complex issues, to use knowledge in all aspects of life, to participate meaningfully as global citizens, and to discover and apply carefully considered values.

CASSH / VPA faculty and staff are committed to maintaining academic integrity and high ethical standards. CASSH / VPA, through its faculty, students, and curricula, also is dedicated to advancing cultural diversity. Furthermore, by developing partnerships and encouraging professional connections, the college works diligently to establish its membership in the broader community.

The academic community within CASSH / VPA supports a strong general education program, nurtures exceptional disciplinary programs, and creates innovative interdisciplinary and international programs, which together promote lifelong personal and professional learning for every individual who comes through their programs.

The Department of Student Affairs Administration ( SAA ) in Higher Education has offered master’s degrees since 1968, with online and blended options since 2007. We opened our doctoral program in Student Affairs Administration & Leadership ( SAAL ) in 2017. Roughly 40-50% of our courses are taught by ranked (tenured or tenure-track faculty) and the rest are taught by “ad hoc” clinical faculty (those we value for their significant professional experience and leadership). Learn more about our programs at http://www.uwlax.edu/saa.
