College of Liberal Arts

Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts

The College of Liberal Arts offers a rich variety of majors, minors, interdisciplinary programs and a diverse and challenging array of general education courses that provide students with tools to participate actively in today's rapidly changing world. Through its talented and dedicated faculty, the college also offers opportunities to study the arts, humanities and social sciences beyond the classroom, through internships, performances, exhibitions, undergraduate research projects and a wide range of study abroad programs.

We invite you to join our community and all it has to offer. For those of you new to Armstrong, you may consider exploring our Freshman Learning Communities and our innovative interdisciplinary programs as an introduction to the liberal arts and its possibilities.

Art, Music & Theatre

AMT students enjoy the unique opportunities Armstrong provides to compose, paint, act, design, sing, direct, perform, sculpt and explore many other creative avenues, all while enrolled as students at Armstrong. AMT students develop impressive portfolios during their course of study to equip them for the challenges that face today’s young arts professionals.

Criminal Justice, Social and Political Sciences

Students majoring in Criminal Justice, Law and Society or Political Science, as well as those taking courses in these areas or Sociology and Anthropology to fulfill Armstrong's core curriculum requirements receive outstanding academic experiences in their classrooms. They can also take advantage of numerous opportunities to participate in moot court, cyber crime labs, study abroad programs and community-based internships to prepare themselves for various careers and graduate studies.


Students majoring in Business Economics receive necessary business and leadership skills that are complemented by the analytical abilities developed in their economics courses. Economics majors receive a sound theoretical foundation in economic theory and statistics, as well as exposure to applied fields, such as finance, international economics and government policy. Both programs offer numerous opportunities to engage in faculty-guided independent research, internships with business or non-profit organizations, study abroad programs, the Center for Regional Analysis and Small Business Institute projects, as well as honor societies and departmental clubs.


Armstrong's History majors embark on a course of study that introduces them to a broad variety of topics and themes, reaching across areas such as Ancient, African, Asian, European and American history, as well as courses in Archival and Museum Studies and Digital History. Because Savannah is a living laboratory awaiting those interested in history, the department often draws upon the rich resources our home city provides and offers programs in public history and tourism studies.

Languages, Literature and Philosophy

Students in LLP gain broad understandings of disciplinary content, theoretical concepts and cultural awareness through their studies in languages, literature, philosophy, film, journalism, creative writing and professional writing. They also have numerous opportunities to develop and polish the practical, critical and analytical skills that prepare them for professional environments in internships and beyond Armstrong, whether in graduate or professional schools, business or public service.

Military Science

Army ROTC is a leadership elective course that is open to all Armstrong students. ROTC is designed to be an elective course that is taken in addition to your academic major field courses. In most cases you will be able to use your ROTC courses for a minor in Military Science.
