College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
Get Ready for Anything
In the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, we offer students an array of perspectives to help them think for themselves. You can explore rain forests in Panama or literature in Spain, present your research at national conferences, or intern with businesses, government, and non-profits in Indianapolis and Washington, DC. We help you take your knowledge beyond the classroom and into the world.
Many departments within LAS offer collaborative research opportunities with the department’s faculty. Students can engage in semester-long or multi-semester research projects, honors thesis research, and the Butler Summer Institute.
Butler’s Individualized Majors program allows students to work with an advisor to create a one-of-a-kind major combining their choice of courses with an approved experiential learning component.
