Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences at ETSU. The College is the center of general education for the University and so touches on nearly every undergraduate student who graduates from ETSU. Our diverse faculty engage in teaching and study of topics that underpin our cultural and scientific development as a society. We offer 22 different majors ranging from Art to Anthropology, Bluegrass to Biology, and Communication Studies to Criminal Justice. These include over 60 different concentrations, and we complement them with over 50 minors. I encourage you to explore these opportunities on the Majors and Minors webpage. In our College, every new student is guided individually by a professional advisor, and our Medical Professions Advisement program prepares students for a range of health areas and is ranked in the top 20 in the nation.
Students in our College have opportunities to engage in research, fieldwork, internships, and community activities, to travel internationally, and to work directly with our faculty who are experts in their fields. The new Martin Center for the Arts will open in fall 2020. Students from any area may be in our marching band, participate in our theatre and dance productions, or volunteer at the Gray Fossil Site. Whatever your major, you can expect to be challenged by talented and caring faculty members working in modern facilities with state-of-the-art classroom technology.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) or the College office (email@example.com; telephone: 423-439-5671). If you would like to meet with an advisor, visit a department, or sit in on a class, please let us know.
