Alumni Relations

COAS Alumni



The College of Arts and Sciences offers programs and courses in the traditional liberal arts disciplines. In addition to providing students with opportunities to develop skills required for the workplace or for advanced study, it seeks to foster well-rounded development of the individual. The school recognizes the role of nontraditional students at IPFW and makes special efforts to meet their needs.

Graduates of the school's baccalaureate programs should have knowledge and awareness enabling them to be effective citizens and lifelong learners. They are expected to have a working understanding of the knowledge and methodology appropriate for their discipline and should be aware of the major issues in their field and able to communicate field content effectively.

The service and research missions of the school are those appropriate to a comprehensive regional university. The school is responsible for basic-skills courses in mathematics and oral and written communication, as well as the majority of the courses fulfilling school and IPFW general-education requirements. Faculty engage in research or creative endeavor linked to their teaching as well as IPFW's role as the regional center for higher education. Through research, faculty maintain their qualifications as teachers and, in their contribution to knowledge in their disciplines, enhance the reputation of the campus. Through research and service, the school seeks to make itself a vital resource for business, industry, public and private education, the arts, and government in northeastern Indiana.
