The Henry Kendall College of Arts and Sciences provides students with a broad foundation of study in the fine and performing arts, humanities, languages and social sciences. The college offers more than 38 major areas of study in disciplines as diverse as the fine arts, communication, film studies, languages, organizational studies and psychology.
Students have the opportunity to conduct research in their specific area of interest under the close guidance of our world class professors, or to structure an independent study course specifically tailored to their academic and career goals.
Students may take advantage of our public service internships which offer opportunities for career exploration and promote community participation. Placements have been made with Oklahoma's U.S. senators, Planned Parenthood, City Utilities Authority, Tulsa Opera, H. A. Chapman Institute of Medical Genetics, Habitat for Humanity, Indian Health Care Resource Center, League of Women Voters, Oklahoma International Export Services, Tulsa Ballet Theatre and Court-Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).
Above all, students gain a solid foundation by participating in the college's nationally recognized Tulsa Curriculum, which engages them in significant books and ideas of Western and other cultures, and by emphasizing critical thinking and clear writing; enable them to analyze what they study and to communicate their own ideas more effectively.
Upon completion, our graduates are prepared to enter into careers such as deaf, music, elementary, and secondary education, graphic design, film, communications and social work or pursue graduate studies. View what our students have done with their Arts and Sciences Degree.
