ABOUT COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES
Associate in Arts was one of the premier programs offered when Philippine Wesleyan College was found in 1946. Such program was offered in the College of Liberal Arts in 1948. In 1969, it was renamed as the College of Arts and Sciences to reflect its growth and expansion into the sciences as well as its changing emphasis in response to the dynamic development needs of higher education.
Since its founding, the College of Arts and Sciences has contributed in realizing the University’s mission and vision.
