The Liberal Arts Department was one of the premier units of the then Philippine Wesleyan College, offering Associate in Arts. In 1948, it was upgraded to College of Liberal Arts and in 1969 was renamed College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) to reflect its growth and expansion into the sciences as well as its changing emphasis in line with developments in education.
CAS is proud of its long and successful record of voluntary accreditation. Since achieving an accredited status in 1983, the Arts and Sciences program has undergone a series of re-survey visits by the Association of Christian Schools, Colleges and Universities-Accrediting Agency, Inc. (ACSCU-AAI). In 2019, the Arts and Sciences programs were granted Level IV Accredited Status, the highest accreditation for tertiary programs.
The General Education courses of all colleges of the University have been placed under the academic and administrative supervision of the College of Arts and Sciences. All WU-P students pass through CAS for their liberal arts education.
