Dr. Heather HathawayWelcome!

The Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences is central to the University's mission because all students, from all colleges, spend time in our courses while at Marquette. In the College, you will find the rich heritage of a Catholic, Jesuit education grounded in academic excellence, social justice, faith and service, that will provide you with a transformative educational experience.

Our outstanding faculty will inspire you to think critically, wrestle with life's most complex questions, and develop a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. The variety and number of majors and minors we offer ensure that you will find your passion, and our excellent advisors will assist you on that path.  Many of our students major in more than one area, while others take advantage of our accelerated degree programs that allow you to earn both an undergraduate and master's degree within five years.

The learning you'll experience in your Arts and Sciences classes can be further enriched by participation in faculty-mentored research projects, internships, service learning and community engagement opportunities, and study abroad programs. Taken as a whole, your Arts and Sciences education will prepare you for a lifetime of achievement, both professionally and personally.

I encourage you to explore the offerings in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences and the many career paths that are available to you.  We are delighted that you have chosen Marquette and the College of Arts and Sciences as your new home!
