Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS)! 

Thank you for your interest in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences at Savannah State University (CLASS).  Our goal is to support the development of students who are respectful of the past, competent to handle the present, and prepared to meet the challenges of the future.

The College offers a blending of theory and practice through experience-based learning programs from study abroad to service learning in a student centered environment.  We foster a passion for learning across curricular, co-curricular and service to community.
