College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences

From visual arts to economics to psychology, from ancient studies to media & communication studies, and from Asian studies to American studies, our departments and programs span the disciplines, the centuries, and the globe. True to the liberal arts mission, our students and faculty ask questions fundamental to human existence: Who are we? Where have we been? What matters? Through diverse, challenging courses and an array of opportunities for research, creative work, internships, and other co-curricular activities, our students develop skills and knowledge that prepare them for a variety of careers and a lifetime of thoughtful citizenship in a complex world.

Reflecting UMBC's deep commitment to undergraduate education and community outreach, as well as to graduate education and research, the College has much to offer our students, the campus community, and the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. With a diverse array of some 30 Bachelor's, 16 Master's, and 6 Ph.D. programs, some offered at the Universities at Shady Grove in Montgomery County, the College comprises more than 270 full-time faculty members, 4,500 undergraduate students, and 1,300 graduate students. It awards more than half of UMBC's undergraduate degrees and graduate degrees and also offers teacher certification programs. The College is also home to UMBC's generous programs for outstanding undergraduate students in the arts (Linehan Artist Scholars Program), the humanities (the Humanities Scholars Program), and the social sciences (the Sondheim Public Affairs Scholars Program). Our graduates go on to graduate and professional study at the highest rate among University System of Maryland campuses, and they go to programs in some of the most distinguished universities in this country and abroad.
