Historical Note

Originally known as the College of Literature, Sciences and the Arts, the College was established at the time of the University of Texas’s founding in 1883. It later became known as the College of Arts and Sciences. In 1971, it was divided to create the College of Natural Sciences, College of Humanities, College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and the Division of General and Comparative Studies. The latter three of these divisions were reintegrated in 1979 to form the College of Liberal Arts.
