About Us

We are the newest college at University of Nebraska at Kearney, combining the colleges of Fine and Performing Arts and Natural and Social Sciences in fall 2018. As a combined college, together we bring even more opportunities for the community, state and region in research, performance and creative activity, and for our students to become creative, analytic thinkers and decision-makers.

Facilities & Venues

Our dedicated faculty and staff are the primary difference makers in Arts & Sciences. But we also know technology and the learning, lab and performance environments are critical to students' learning. Here at UNK we have plenty of places and opportunities for students to explore, invent, perform, and try things on their own or with other students.


Students in the College of Arts and Sciences are fully engaged in hands-on learning activities and creative activities through undergraduate research, performances, and internships. Seventy percent of students participate in some form of experiential learning.
