1 college, 3 schools

FLC’s academics are organized into three schools. The departments comprising our liberal arts curriculum, what you might think of as the classic college subjects, are in the School of Arts & Sciences. Our progressive teacher education programs, including classroom and Adventure Education, are in their own school, as are our innovative business programs rooted in collaboration with local entrepreneurs and a future-oriented vision.

School of Arts & Sciences

You’ll find most academic departments here, from Psychology to English to Physics & Engineering. These departments offer majors, minors, and certificates in over 40 programs, some of which are multidisciplinary, like Forensic Studies, which is a collaboration between the Anthropology, Biology, and Psychology departments.

School of Arts & Sciences
School of Business Administration

The School of Business Administration (SOBA) offers six majors and minors, and two certificate programs, for specialized interests within the world of business. You’ll have the chance to compete to win a store and opportunities to win seed money to start your own business.

School of Business Administration
School of Education

The Four Corners’ hub of teacher education, our programs prepare you for teacher licensure or elevate your existing license. Combine an undergraduate major with teacher education to streamline your path to teaching high school, follow up your undergraduate education in a post-baccalaureate program, or continue into graduate school to earn your Special Education endorsement.
