Bellarmine College of Arts and Sciences presents the liberal arts educational tradition that is the very foundation of a Bellarmine education.
A liberal arts degree is a highly sought-after degree because it emphasizes critical thinking, diverse learning, research skills, and the ability to work productively with others. Through minors or double majors, students have opportunities to combine two or more disciplines into a comprehensive educational package. Students in Bellarmine College find rewarding employment or acceptance into graduate, law, medical, and other professional schools after graduation.
As a student in an arts and sciences program, you’ll find a faculty committed to the intellectual development of the whole person. People who graduate with a degree in the liberal arts and sciences are clear thinkers, problem solvers, and creative people with the ability to know, understand, change and grow. Whether your passion is art, biology, communication, mathematics, music, psychology or one of 20 other majors, we've got you covered.
Five Bellarmine College faculty members have received Fulbright teaching and research awards: English Professors Jennifer Barker and Anthony O’Keeffe, Theology Professors Joseph Flipper and Elizabeth Hinson-Hasty, and Communication Professor Moira O’Keefe.
Bellarmine College offers a variety of unique minors with a focus on social justice: African American & African Diaspora Studies, Peace Studies, Refugee & Forced Migration Studies, Women & Gender Studies and the development of career skills (Digital Media, Marketing Communications, and others).
