Prospective Students

The College of Liberal Arts offers more Majors and Minors than any other college at SIU. We play a role in the academic life of students across campus. We want our students to participate fully in University life as well. We encourage our students to get involved by joining a Registered Student Organization, by taking advantage of University-wide grant-funded Research Opportunities, Study Abroad options, and the University Honors program. Our new students receive extra information, opportunities and resources through the University’s New Student Programs.
