College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences

A bold direction for liberal and creative arts education.

Powered by your generosity, we’re preparing global thinkers and world changers.

We’re ensuring that the world-class liberal and creative arts education journey we provide at DU includes transformative experiences, applied learning, a commitment to ethical leadership and the development of lifelong problem-solving, community-building and analytical skills. For those driven to lead and shape our world, we are establishing DU as a destination for outstanding students in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

A democratic society needs such thinkers, writers, community leaders, and actors trained and ready to innovate and to anticipate and address the world’s most pressing challenges.
