Message from the Dean

Welcome to the School of Arts and Sciences, the home of LAU’s oldest programs! Our school offers a diverse range of undergraduate majors rooted in an interdisciplinary liberal arts and sciences curriculum, leading to a wide array of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees.
Our curricula are designed to celebrate the richness of cultures, the diversity of thought and the intersection of various disciplines. We take immense pride in our educational programs and are committed to keeping our facilities up-to-date with the latest developments. At the School of Arts and Sciences, we provide students with a state-of-the-art education, blending face-to-face and online modalities to enhance the learning experience.
Our Liberal Arts and Sciences curriculum explores the impact of modern advances on health, energy and the environment. We probe artificial intelligence and the ethics behind the inventions of the future. Our computer science program is the first in the region and one of the earliest American Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accredited programs. Our programs in biological sciences, chemistry, nutrition and dietetics, communication, TV and film, performing arts, multimedia journalism, education, political science and psychology consistently rank among the top programs in Lebanon and in the region.
In recent years, we have made significant strides in offering unique learning opportunities and have attracted top-quality faculty and staff to our institution. As staunch proponents of liberal arts education, we continuously evaluate and accredit our academic programs, modernize our laboratories and theaters, integrate cutting-edge technology, introduce innovative programs that align with market demands and promote research that enriches the intellectual environment within our school and the broader university community.
Once again, welcome to the School of Arts and Sciences and welcome to LAU!
