School of
Arts and Sciences


Ranging from sciences to healthcare, agriculture, criminal justice, and the humanities, students choose majors in Alfred State’s School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) to satisfy their curiosity and thirst for learning. Here students build career skills along with a sense of self, ethical awareness, critical reasoning, and analytical thinking.

Students can choose this school to become high-paid, job-secure health professionals with an associate or bachelor’s degree. Arts and Sciences is home for traditional liberal arts studies that are great for transfer and career flexibility. Associate and bachelor’s degrees in individualized and interdisciplinary studies also allow students to shape their own path to a satisfying and successful future.
