At the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, we foster discovery and creativity in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. As a premier research facility, students work side-by-side with faculty in labs, classrooms and the field to uncover new questions and answer age-old mysteries.
Our departments are actively engaged in cutting-edge research initiatives, partnering with prestigious institutes and foundations. Through the constant development of theories, the gathering and interpretation of data and the formulation of new techniques of inquiry, our research helps find solutions to real-world concerns.
