As the Dean, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences at USF Sarasota-Manatee.
We are an interdisciplinary community of approximately 70 scholars, bound by a shared commitment to the study of human ideas and experience, critical inquiry, creative expression, and open discourse.
Our motto—“OPENING MINDS, OPENING DOORS”—expresses our commitment to empower students in two important ways. While we offer a wide variety of majors, minors, and concentrations, they all prepare students (1) to experience life with the courage to explore new ideas and the confidence to critically challenge them, and (2) to pursue chosen career paths successfully.
