College of Arts and Sciences
The College of Arts and Sciences houses nearly 40 percent of UTC undergraduate majors and offers 60 percent of all our courses. It is our largest and oldest academic unit, consisting of mathematics and the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and fine arts. Professors with national and international reputations routinely teach freshmen and sophomores in small classes. Teachers like Professor of English Earl Braggs. “I feel that the idea of getting in touch with your deepest sensibilities and being able to express them on paper enhances a student’s potential in all courses—even math and science,” says Braggs.
Our social sciences programs provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become effective providers and administrators of social and community service programs. Courses of study include allied health management, criminal justice, human services, legal assistant studies, and nonprofit management. UTC is among the few universities in the country offering a bachelor’s degree in emergency services management, preparing graduates to lead response efforts after disasters, such as floods, hazardous waste spills, or terrorist acts. Faculty nurture relationships with surrounding metropolitan and rural agencies so students can experience Chattanooga and the surrounding region as a natural laboratory for intellectual, practical, and empirical growth.
