discover. create. ignite.

The College of Arts and Sciences is not only the largest of the six colleges at NKU, but we also offer the most diverse collection of degree programs and the widest array of general education courses. Students will discover something of interest in our classes and leave better prepared to solve problems, create, discover, communicate, and influence their communities and the world around them.
