Providing access. Pursuing excellence.

There are many paths to achieving a university education, and ASU's College of Integrative Sciences and Arts builds degrees and pathways that help make that dream a possibility!

We offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs that are flexible, innovative, and many have an applied emphasis. 

Our faculty engage in research, clinical and creative activities that support knowledge development, applied practice and involve students in discovery.

We are guided by the principles of educational access, student success, and interdisciplinary inquiry. We collaborate and partner with every college at ASU through general studies support, interdisciplinary studies concentration areas, student success and retention efforts, and access initiatives. 

We are honored to be the home college for more than 5,700 undergraduate majors, enrolled in our degree programs — at ASU's Polytechnic, Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, Lake Havasu, and ASU Online campuses as well as in partnership programs onsite at Eastern Arizona College, Arizona Western College, Central Arizona College and Cochise College.

The College of Integrative Sciences and Arts is also home to ASU's nearly 2,000 Exploratory students, who are in the process of career exploration, major selection or transition. 

Students in degree programs across ASU also come to the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts to take solid foundation courses in humanities, social and natural sciences, and mathematics that are built for a rapidly changing marketplace.
