School of Arts and 

International Programs
in the School of Arts and Sciences

Mission Statement

An important task is to prepare ourselves to live and work effectively, knowledgeably, and sensitively in a world characterized by increasing interdependence among the cultures and nations of the world. SAS believes that students develop a true understanding of international diversity only through direct contact with other cultures and other languages. Toward these ends, the School of Arts and Sciences works to create new opportunities in international education as well as to devise ways to expose our students to the rich cultural diversity within the Philadelphia community.

SAS encourages departments to make study abroad part of the major, to embed studies of other cultures in the undergraduate curriculum, and to explore multiculturalism in the Philadelphia area for students who for financial or other reasons cannot go abroad.
