Welcome to CLASS

The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) is the heart of the University, dedicated to spurring intellectual curiosity, creativity, and transformative education. Encompassing humanities, social sciences, and health sciences, CLASS is truly a mosaic of disciplines that broaden perspectives, inspire potential, and advance possibilities yet unimagined.

Dr. Antonio D. Tillis

Dean’s Welcome Back Message – Fall 2017

As summer comes to a close and we prepare for a new academic year, I want to take this opportunity to welcome CLASS faculty, staff, and students back to the campus of the University of Houston. I want to especially welcome our 23 new dynamic CLASS faculty members, whose diverse areas of expertise in research and teaching will help CLASS continue to spur intellectual curiosity and creativity, resulting in a transformative education for our students.

I also want to acknowledge our 1025 new incoming freshman, 1738 new transfer students (as in from other academic institutions), 152 new masters’ students, and 56 new doctoral students. We are excited that you have chosen CLASS as your new home for higher learning; and, we look forward to the contributions that you will make to our college. I am confident you will help CLASS continue to build upon its academic excellence in the areas of humanities, social sciences, and health disciplines.
