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.

The appointment of Dr. Antonio Tillis as new dean of UH’s largest college was finalized during the most recent University of Houston System Board of Regents meeting. He is slated to begin his role on February 1.
Dr. Tillis joins CLASS from the College of Charleston where he is professor of Hispanic studies and dean of the School of Languages, Culture and World Affairs. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Spanish from Vanderbilt University, a master’s in Spanish literature from Howard University, and a Ph.D. in Latin American literature with an Afro-Hispanic emphasis from the University of Missouri.
CLASS looks forward to welcoming him to our college and to the University of Houston.
We provide an environment that encourages learning and creativity at the highest level. Not only does the university maintain academic excellence, but we wish to create a friendly community between our students and staff. Great things wait for every student that steps foot into the University of Houston.
