Welcome to the School of Arts & Sciences
Chowan University is committed to academic excellence in teaching, asking relevant questions, and service learning. Chowan continues to uphold traditional Judeo-Christian values while remaining faithful to the historic principles of religious and intellectual freedom, the dignity and worth of each individual, an atmosphere of open dialogue, freedom of inquiry and expression, and a moral commitment to the pursuit of truth.
When students enter Chowan, they enter a community of learning, teaching, and faith. Chowan students receive a real world, Christian education, where faith and learning are connected through internships, study abroad, community engagement, missions, and leadership opportunities. Because of Chowan's intimate size and close-knit, familial environment, students find that professors are accessible to them before, during, and after class.
Unlike many state universities where graduate or teacher's assistants teach classes, all of Chowan's classes are taught by Chowan’s dedicated faculty, who are instructors and advisors employed to have faith in your future.
