Undergraduate Degrees

Choose from a comprehensive selection of liberal arts majors 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is home to one of the largest collections of academic majors for undergraduate studies at Arizona State University. Whether you want to use mathematical tools to understand risk, explore how and why humans evolved through anthropology, become well versed in film and media studies or anything in between, we have an undergraduate degree program that’ll suit your unique interests and individual needs.

You’ll have the ability to sculpt a personalized learning experience for your career goals. If you want a broader education focused on liberal arts studies, a Bachelor of Arts may be ideal for you. If you’re eager to master the technical aspects of a specific area of study, a Bachelor of Science may be a better fit for you.
