The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) is a pillar of the academic foundation of Georgia Southern University, playing a central role in every student’s core of knowledge. Our primary goal is to shape a dedication to investigation and creativity within liberal arts and social sciences through dynamic educational offerings. This commitment involves all members of the College in a fundamental concern for excellence, innovation, and the pursuit of knowledge.

CLASS encourages students to address the analytical, historical, cultural, and the philosophical foundations of their disciplines. We prepare students to be vital members of their professional communities. Likewise, we promote participation in civic and public life and remain committed to preparing each of our students to be responsible global citizens.

CLASS has a solid reputation as a national contributor to furthering arts, humanities, and social sciences. The support of alumni and friends continues to help us as we maintain Georgia Southern’s commitment to Academic Distinction.┬áIt gives us great delight to welcome new students to our innovative and exciting programs.
