The School of Liberal Arts encompasses the arts, humanities, and social sciences through 16 departments and 19 interdisciplinary programs as well as the Carroll Gallery, Shakespeare Festival, Summer Lyric Theatre, and the Middle American Research Institute. Our small classes allow students to be active learners directly engaged with their courses. Liberal arts students not only learn key skills of writing, analysis and communication but come to understand better both themselves and the world beyond.
The School of Liberal Arts strives to build a global liberal arts curriculum and faculty, embraces our dual identity as research one university and liberal arts college, and forges a deeper relationship with New Orleans and the Gulf South. These pillars build upon Tulane’s distinctive academic strengths, provide leadership, and encourage students to remain in the city after graduation.
