The College of Arts and Sciences is where cultural and intellectual diversity meet. With majors in the sciences, humanities and the arts, the college has a culture of collaboration that encourages students to discover their own path. From producing documentary films to drug discovery and health disparities research, students learn to explore ideas, think critically and communicate in a clear and concise manner. State-of-the art laboratories, master classes with jazz legends and guest lectures with global thought leaders are a part of the everyday experiences that students enjoy.
The research possibilities are limitless at NCCU in part because of two multi-million dollar research facilities headed by STEM scholar-researchers who lead the way in health disparities research, improving the health of underrepresented communities across the globe. Science majors at NCCU have the opportunity to study on six continents in fields as varied as tropical pathology and infectious diseases to seismic activity.
World-class performance, recording and research opportunities prepare Department of Music graduates to become leaders in the arts. Music faculty include legendary jazz artists, Metropolitan Opera principal performers and award-winning vocal and jazz ensembles. Visual artists have the opportunity to showcase their work among some of North Carolina’s leading collections of works by African-American artists and by others dealing with the black experience through the NCCU Art Museum.
From history to graphic design, the College of Arts and Sciences provides an opportunity for self-inquiry, research and career exploration. The college offers 13 undergraduate programs, eight master’s programs and a Ph.D. in Integrated Biosciences.
