Areas of Study
At UIC's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, we prepare active learners for 21st-century careers. We believe (and employers, graduate and professional schools agree) that a strong liberal arts and sciences education is the best foundation for a successful future, and a lifetime of learning and achievement.
LAS students are encouraged to discover their ambitions, practice critical problem-solving, and develop the flexibility to adapt to a rapidly changing economy and job landscape.
LAS offers majors and minors across the sciences, social sciences and humanities (as well as many interdisciplinary programs). The college has 11 pre-professional tracks, 6 secondary education programs, foreign language study, and the ability to combine an LAS major with any UIC minor (like a minor in Business). Many of our departments are nationally ranked and recognized for their strengths.
