Students and faculty in the College of Arts and Science (CAS) study, teach, and conduct research in the sciences, mathematics, languages, humanities, social sciences, and interdisciplinary programs. We provide a liberal arts education that prepares students for professional programs, graduate school, or careers in business & industry, government, education, and service organizations.

Small Classes and Student Success
Most (71%) of our undergraduate classes have fewer than 30 students. Over 45% of our graduates find employment immediately after graduation; 48% continue their education in law, medical, dental, business, or graduate schools.

Miami is expanding its areas of inquiry and course offerings to meet the needs of the 21st century. Our interdisciplinary programs reflect our commitment to prepare students for active roles in the new global community. The Institute for the Environment and Sustainability offers graduate programs and 2 undergraduate co-majors and the Western Program enables students to design their own, unique major.

We prepare students for admission to professional schools:
- The Mallory-Wilson Center for Healthcare Education provides programs and services that inform students of the issues facing today's healthcare professionals.
- Miami's Pre-Law Program educates students about law school and the practice of law, as well as providing focused guidance and counseling on undergraduate coursework and law school admissions.
Miami students are encouraged to participate in study abroad programs and nearly 2000 students do so each year. Undergraduates may earn Miami credit at the Dolibois European Center in Luxembourg or the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics in Dharamsala, India. Miami professors often teach summer classes in Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America.
