About Us

The College of Arts and Sciences was established on January 11, 1966 by the University of Northern Philippines–Board of Regents through Resolution No. 13, s. 1996. The Resolution states that “the organization of the Colleges of Industrial Education, Arts and Sciences, and Engineering be approved in principle depending upon the availability of funds.” The College thus is among the first academic units that were established following the creation of the University through Republic Act 4449 authored by the late Congressman Floro S. Crisologo on June 19, 1965. It started operating in SY 1967-1968 with the offering of Bachelor of Arts major in: English, Political Science, Psychology, History, and Guidance. The College also serviced all other academic units by offering the general education subjects to all first year and second year students. In the early 70s, departments were created in the College: Departments of Languages and Humanities, Socio-Behavioral Sciences, Breeder Sciences, Mathematics, and Physical Education. Eventually, more academic units were created offering more courses including the general education subjects.

Festival of Arts and Sciences

The College of Art and Sciences (CAS) Week Celebration commemorates the day when the institution was founded. It celebrates diversity in all forms, harmony through differences. It also imparts to every member of the community the spirit of togetherness. This celebration seeks to ensure that every stakeholder takes part and is recognized.

As a tradition of commemorating the excellent service of the College to its students, faculty, staff, University officials, and the community, the College of Arts and Sciences celebrates the annual Festival of the Arts and Sciences. This activity creates an impact on the students as they gear up to become responsible leaders within the community and prime contributors of change in society as creative and productive citizens. It also strengthens the camaraderie of the different programs of the College towards its vision and mission of being an excellent academic institution, as well as developing the instruction, extension, research, creativity, and advocacy functions of the College and its stakeholders.

The Festival of the Arts and Sciences is a step in building a firm foundation of the community through its undergraduate and graduate programs. This celebration focuses on human, social, and natural sciences wherein students get to develop their competence in fields of specialization and creates a sense of social responsibility on a local and global scale.
