The University of Texas—Arlington’s College of Liberal Arts (CoLA) has long been a resource for students seeking to learn, grow, and develop the skills necessary to succeed in an array of professional fields. Ranked the 5th most diverse university in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, and #1 in Texas for veterans, according to Military Times, the 420-acre campus presently serves nearly 40,000 students. With more than 10,000 students living on or adjacent to campus, it is a virtual city within a city. Why, then, aren’t more high school seniors from the metroplex applying for admission?


It’s a question their recruiting team hopes to answer at the CoLA Open House event, on Tuesday, January 29th. Representatives from Art + Art History, Communications, Criminology and Criminal Justice, English, History, Linguistics and TESOL, Modern Languages, Music, Philosophy and Humanities, Political Science, Sociology and Anthropology, and Theatre Arts will be on-hand to answer applicant questions and highlight the achievements and opportunities that await within each unique department.


In addition to enjoying face-time with liberal arts department representatives, attendees can submit transcripts, fee waivers and other admission documents at this one-stop-shop. They can also explore new and featured programs including: undergraduate certificate programs in Medical Humanities and Esports, the Forensic Science minor, and the B.A. in Music Industry Studies. The collective opportunity represented by our innovative academic programs underscores the undeniable value of a Maverick education. After all, UTA has the second lowest average student debt among national universities (U.S. News and World Report, 2017).


The UTA College of Liberal Arts Open House will be held January 29, 2019, from 6:00-8:00 PM, at 1111 W. Mockingbird Lane, Suite 1150, Dallas, TX 75247. For more information, contact our Academic Recruiter, Jamie McTigue, at Jamie.McTigue@uta.edu or (817) 272-5275.
