Teaching Support

Arts & Sciences’ overarching goal is to fulfill the potential of our students to rise to the myriad challenges presented by an increasingly complex world. We achieve this by exposing our students to great faculty and to new ideas. Our faculty across our disparate disciplines inspire deep learning as they bring the newest advances in research to the seminar room, classroom, lecture hall and lab. The education we offer gives our students the skills to negotiate the complexities of living in a highly advanced, technological, multicultural society.

In Arts & Sciences, we are proud to support our faculty scholars, whose work in and out of the classroom helps to address and solve most difficult problems covering the full range of human experience. We are grateful that their work enables Washington University to offer the very best learning experience for our students and the very best research environment for our faculty.
