You're in the right place
In the College of Arts & Sciences, your student will be prepared for long-term success, developing the intellectual flexibility and analytical and communication skills needed for an ever-changing job market. One third of all Fortune 1000 CEOs have an arts and sciences degree, and employers believe that all students should acquire the kind of broad knowledge that an arts and sciences education provides.
We also understand that sending a child or loved one to college is a significant emotional and financial commitment. The University of Washington and the College of Arts & Sciences recognize the integral role of family in students’ lives. We encourage families to explore the many resources available to undergraduate students.
