Classes in the college are small—typically, upper level classes are around 15 to 20 students—and are taught by full-time faculty members, rather than teaching assistants. CHAS professors are committed both to teaching and providing opportunities for student-centered scholarship in the humanities, research in the sciences and performance and creative activities in the arts. Above all, they are dedicated to helping students succeed.

CHAS majors have an opportunity to work with faculty members on cutting-edge research as undergraduates. Participating in research, as well as other experiences beyond the classroom such as field trips and internships, is an integral part of an education in CHAS. A variety of student organizations extend students' experiences in the college and offers many ways to become involved.
