College of Arts and Sciences

Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences at Delta State University.

Renowned literary figure William Butler Yeats once said that “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” As an embodiment of Yeats’ words of wisdom, our mission within the College of Arts and Sciences is to spark a flame within each of our students and to nourish that flame into a roaring fire. We accomplish this by first offering our students a curriculum that is both relevant and rigorous. We then teach students to think critically, to communicate effectively, to integrate material across traditional subject boundaries, and to apply what they learn inside our classrooms to the outside world in which they will work and live.

We believe that our academic programs, under the guidance of our talented and dedicated faculty, afford our students a first-rate educational experience at an exceptional value.
