School of Arts And Sciences

Message from the Dean

Without viable thinking and communication abilities, students in the 21st Century will not be able to engage intensively in the cultural, social and technological changes impacting all professional roles in society. The School of Arts and Sciences is the educational foundation for all academic programs at Tiffin University. Our general education courses prepare students to be critical thinkers, engage in teamwork, communicate with clarity, and understand cultural and ethical implications of human behavior. With these abilities, a person will be successful in any career choices they make.

The School of Arts and Sciences supports degree programs in Arts Administration, Communication, Education, English, General Science, History, Professional Music, Exercise Science and Forensic Science, and language studies. Our school also has supporting coursework with other majors at Tiffin University in the School of Business and the School of Criminal Justice and Social Sciences.

We have diverse, talented professors who help our students investigate many different facets of human thought that shape our culture and society. The faculty and staff of the school will assist any student to discern her or his area of interest and pursue a course of study leading to professional success. We take the time to listen and guide students to achieve their highest potential.

We are excited to share with you a new science lab for the Fall 2015 semester. Along with this new lab, the Exercise Science lab is available to students for assessment classes and practical assignments.  Our students will be able to engage in scientific processes in both labs that will prepare them for professional positions.

The School of Arts and Sciences also presents opportunities to all students on campus to engage in theater productions and musical ensembles.  Our students engaging in these activities build relationships and skills that last their lifetime.

Please also take time to visit the Diane Kidd Art Gallery. Shows exhibited range in media to enrich the lives of students, faculty and the community. Professional, amateur and students artists have exhibited in the gallery.

It is my privilege to represent the faculty of the School of Arts and Sciences. We welcome your interest in Tiffin University, whether you’re a present or prospective student.

If I can be of assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me.
