The Purdue University College of Liberal Arts is one of eight colleges (major academic divisions) of Purdue University. In addition to liberal arts programs, the College of Liberal Arts also contains the arts, social sciences and humanities programs at Purdue.

The College of Liberal Arts is home to the Cornerstone Integrated Liberal Arts program, which in September 2020 became the model for an initiative led by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Teagle Foundation to replicate the program's general education delivery at colleges and universities across the country.[2] [3][4]

Departments[edit]

The College of Liberal Arts contains ten minor academic units, or Departments. The Schools and Departments include:

Location[edit]

While liberal arts courses meet in many buildings throughout Purdue's campus, the College's administrative offices, as well as those of many staff and faculty members, are located in the Beering Hall of Liberal Arts and Education. As the building's name suggests, space in Beering Hall is shared between the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Education. It is named in honor of former Purdue President Steven C. Beering.

History[edit]

Liberal arts courses have been taught at Purdue since its founding in 1874. The School of Science, Education, and Humanities was formed in 1953. In 1963, the School of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Education was established, although Bachelor of Arts degrees had begun to be conferred as early as 1959. In 1989, the School of Liberal Arts was created to encompass Purdue's arts, humanities, and social sciences programs, while education programs were split off into the newly formed School of Education. The School of Liberal Arts was renamed the College of Liberal Arts in 2005.
