Executive Dean and Vice Provost Joe Steinmetz Whether you are new or returning, we are delighted to welcome you to the College of Arts and Sciences!  With 38 departments and schools and 75 majors, our college offers you unlimited opportunities.  From Anthropology to Zoology and from World Literature to Dance, we encourage you to explore, to question, and to create in innovative ways.  You will not only uncover the many benefits of a large university, but life-long friendships that emerge from taking part in the many smaller groups that make up our college community.  Along with your fellow students, you are embarking on an exciting and transformational experience.  We look forward to sharing that journey with you.
