The College of Liberal Arts is the cornerstone of the University. The liberal arts are personally enriching and eminently practical. CLA prepares students to embark on a lifetime of learning and to adapt to a rapidly changing world. When our students leave OSU, they have the critical thinking and communication skills necessary to succeed in their careers and their lives.

Favorite Thing about CLA: I love the fact that our majors identify, confront and undertake real world problems. Problems revealed by reading the headlines of any news source. By thinking critically, testing ideas and envisioning the future, Liberal Arts majors are initiating changes that the world needs.
Admissions Advice: Because many CLA majors do not automatically translate into job titles, it can be difficult to identify where a career path will lead. This is why I encourage you to reach out to me as soon as possible. I want all prospective students to discover the many exceptional programs of study available through the College of Liberal Arts.
