Welcome to the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at Arizona State University

ASU Dean Roen

Integrative Sciences and Arts (formerly known as the College of Letters and Sciences) is a small, diverse college where disciplines converge and we emphasize a collaborative approach to learning, teaching and discovery. We have a pulse on the issues of today and tomorrow and offer you the flexibility to create a degree you love.  

If you have completed some community college or university credits and are looking to finish a bachelor's expediently, you will also find degrees that are an especially efficient choice for returning adults.

We offer majors and solid foundation courses across the sciences and math, the humanities, and the social sciences — including degrees in specialty fields such as technical communication and user experience, sustainable horticulture, natural resource ecology, preveterinary medicine, and counseling psychology.

No matter what degree you choose, you'll develop as a master learner, interdisciplinarian, and solutions-maker, ready to apply your knowledge and skills to serve the greater community and world.

You'll enjoy a learning environment that emphasizes:

  • innovative teaching
  • applied experiences and active engagement in projects
  • opportunities to develop your full potential
  • residential living options to support your success  

If you’ve not yet chosen a major, our Exploratory program lets you test the waters in popular academic tracks:  health and life sciences; humanities, fine arts and design; social and behavioral sciences; and math, technology, engineering and physical sciences.

We’re excited to meet you where you are — geographically and in your educational journey — and want to support your success at ASU and beyond.

Check out our programs offered at ASU’s Polytechnic, Downtown Phoenix, and Tempe campuses; at the ASU Colleges at Lake Havasu City; through ASU Online; and through our partnerships at Eastern Arizona College in Thatcher, Ariz.; at Arizona Western College in Yuma, Ariz.; at Central Arizona College in Coolidge, Ariz.; and at Cochise College in Sierra Vista, Ariz.
