An education built for
Butler’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences attracts and nurtures the kinds of students who are never satisfied with the status quo. We are a community of wonderful “ands”: Relentlessly ambitious and consistently collaborative. Data-driven and culturally inspired.
We immerse students in not only the oldest teachings but also the latest learnings in culture and language, science and technology, psychology and philosophy. In all disciplines, we incorporate research, we focus on communication, and we emphasis ethics. The results are just as wonderful as the “ands.” Our graduates are successful in every way they define the term.

New Sciences Complex
Learn by doing in a place built for discovery
Science is collaborative and interdisciplinary. We’ve let those tenets guide the $100 million renovation of our Sciences Complex, which opened in fall 2021. Here, you’ll find classrooms designed for hands-on learning and laboratories that look like ones you’d find in some of the world’s leading research companies.
Play a part in advancing knowledge
At Butler, you can help faculty members conduct research and scholarship that’s expanding the limits of human understanding. Best of all, you can have that opportunity as an undergraduate student.
Literary Aspirations, Realized
Take advantage of small classes and interactive events as you earn your MA in English or MFA in Creative Writing. Both programs are flexible enough to accommodate your interests and career goals, as you immerse yourself in one of the Midwest’s liveliest literary communities.
