Where Active Dialogue Fosters Enhanced Understanding
When he established Lehigh in 1865, Asa Packer knew that a strong economy depends not only on technical skills, but also on generations of people who are broadly educated in the liberal arts and sciences — people who combine the practical with the aesthetic and whose knowledge would lead to a lifetime of learning, growth and discovery. Solving the world's problems means discussing vigorously and working to bridge differences of belief, background, and disciplinary perspective.
As the core of a Lehigh education, the College of Arts and Sciences provides a learning environment that engages students with faculty who are driving the intellectual development of their disciplines but also eager to explore the intersections of disciplines. Whether it’s to advance your career, find new horizons, or nurture your creativity, discover the programs that engage, enrich, inform, challenge, and inspire you.
