The School of Arts and Sciences, originally the College of Liberal Arts was founded in 1948. It conferred its first Bachelor of Arts degree upon graduates in 1952. The College started with two four - year courses leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts major in English and Political Science.

Virtually, the College of Education and the College of Arts & Sciences were merged into one (1) college in June of School Year 2008 - 2009. It was named College of Arts, Sciences and Education (CASED). The rationale behind the merging focused on two (2) major considerations. First, there was a great need to do facilities sharing between the two (2) colleges to further equip the students with the use of state - of - the - art audio visual equipment and materials. Second, the College of Arts & Sciences has a rich pool of faculty needed in the College of Education; thus there was opportunity for the College of Education to strengthen its faculty and make the college viable.

Last 2016, the University split CASED into the School of Arts and Sciences and School of Education to ensure identity and distinctiveness of all programs of both schools.

The School of Arts and Sciences provides the student with a liberal education background in the humanities and social sciences. It offers three fields of specialization with the academic fields of study he pursues. The sense of national identity and Christian orientation which the school instills is the essence of HAU education.


The School of Arts and Sciences aims to become a premier provider of innovative and relevant liberal arts education in the service of the society.


To produce highly–valued graduates who are persons of conscience, competence and compassion


The School of Arts and Sciences aims to provide a solid foundation where it seeks to:

  1. Train students to think critically and communicate effectively

  4. Deepen the students' application of theoretical and professional knowledge as effective tools in promoting and life-long learning and one's sense of social responsibility and love of country
