School of Arts & Sciences

The School of Arts & Sciences (SAS) at Chatham University is home to many undergraduate degrees and several thriving graduate programs. We are known for small, dynamic classes, one-on-one advising by expert faculty, flexibility, and a hands-on, open-door approach, because students come first at SAS. The School is proud to house more than 30 undergraduate majors and 3 graduate degrees.
