Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences!
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) is the academic core of learning and research at UConn. We give students a liberal arts and sciences education that empowers them with broad knowledge, transferable skills, and an ability to think critically about important issues across a variety of disciplines.
CLAS believes that a positive academic advising experience is imperative to a student’s success in college. For this reason, CLAS has a two-tiered advising system – at the departmental level, and at the Academic Services Center, which serves all CLAS undergraduate students – which enables all CLAS students to have access to academic advisors.
About CLAS Orientation
All CLAS students at orientation will learn about the College’s academic policies, procedures, and requirements as a group. Students will also meet in sub-groups organized by major to learn about their major requirements, CLAS general education requirements, and graduation requirements. These sub-groups facilitate the important relationship between students, their advisors, and their peers, and better prepare students for their course registration sessions the following day.
