The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences offers two graduate degrees, one in History and one in Human Development Counseling. 

The College offers opportunities for personal and professional enrichment in courses taught by faculty who are dedicated teacher-scholars, who have published books and articles, and who have presented their scholarship around the world. Faculty are committed to mentoring graduate research projects. Courses are taught using state-of-the-art classrooms, computer labs, and dedicated spaces for clinical observation and research. Co-curricular activities are plentiful with the Visual Arts Gallery, Music and Theatre performances, and a variety of student clubs and academic honor societies.

In addition to a university-wide emphasis on student-centered educational experiences, the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences has a mission to provide a broad education for success by encouraging student participation in an interdependent, diverse, and rapidly changing world where learners become leaders and citizens of transformation in their local and global communities.
