Points of Pride
Emiquon scenery The UIS College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the largest college at UIS, enrolling approximately 55 percent of all UIS students. It delivers a rich array of undergraduate and graduate programs using classroom-based, online, and blended formats in technologically advanced environments. A wide range of options exists for ongoing study, including experiential learning opportunities through Experiential and Service Learning and interdisciplinary degrees such as the Liberal Studies major. Research extends far beyond the campus, as exemplified by the Emiquon project on the Illinois River. We also emphasize global and multicultural issues throughout the curriculum.
