WELCOME TO THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SOCIAL SCIENCES (CLASS)
East Central University's College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences takes a student-centered approach inside and outside of the classroom, providing quality instruction and producing research and creative work that enriches our academic disciplines, our communities, and the lives of our students.
GROUNDED IN TRADITION, EMBRACING THE PRESENT, EXCITED ABOUT THE FUTURE
We teach the traditional liberal arts and social science disciplines of Art, Communication, English, History, Husic, Political Science, Sociology, and Theatre, along with applied programs in Counseling, Criminal Justice, Legal Studies, Mass Communication, Services to the Deaf, Social Work, and Water Resource Management. We also offer an interdisciplinary program in Native American Studies and an interdisciplinary studies program designed to serve adult learners.
PROUD TO SERVE OUR COMMUNITY AND REGION
The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences hosts events and programs all year long. To name just a few, these include the Chickasaw Nation’s Arts Academy, Law Day, the Little Dixie Choral Contest, and the Scissortail Creative Writing Festival. We are home to the Brandon Whitten Institute for Addiction and Recovery, and our Water Resource and Policy Management students and faculty monitor creeks and streams for water quality.
