Overview

The College of Arts and Sciences provides students a rigorous, dynamic, and The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) provides students a rigorous, dynamic, and creative liberal arts education for personal and professional development in a diverse, local, and global environment.liberal arts education for personal and professional development in a diverse, local, and global environment.

The College of Arts and Sciences is the centerpiece of Salem State University. Our programs are the core of a liberal education, instilling critical knowledge, skills, and values that enable graduates to become professional and community leaders in a diverse and global environment.

Our Sport and Movement Science, Exercise Science Concentration - Professional Track focuses on direct employment following graduation in a setting, including but not limited to; a university fitness center, a corporate facility, a commercial facility, hospital rehabilitation or a community center. Our Clinical Track focuses on graduate school preparation in the fields of Exercise Science or Exercise Physiology as well as Allied Health Fields that include, but are not limited to Physical Therapy, Medicine, Physician Assistance and Chiropractics.

Liberal arts education exposes students to a broad palette of information, which, though seeming dissimilar, are fundamentally connected and coherent. The philosophy of CAS is to help students recognize the coherence and intersections of the many disciplines that comprise arts and sciences. Knowledge, we believe, does not come pre-packaged into one field or discipline, but form part of a seamless web across many disciplines. Companies, businesses, and industry are increasingly searching for educated students rather than individuals trained in narrowly specialized professional fields. That education, they believe, prepare students to negotiate the fluidity and complexities of jobs in emerging markets. The adaptability of the liberal arts degree responds best to new market economies with an increasing emphasis on sustainability.

Our Mission

Salem State University's mission is to provide a high quality, student-centered education that prepares a diverse community of learners to contribute responsibly and creatively to a global society, and serve as a resource to advance the region's cultural, social and economic development.
