Message from the Dean
Welcome to Samford! If you're a student considering your college choices, let me give you a few reasons to consider majoring in one of the many subjects offered in the Howard College of Arts and Sciences:
An emphasis on lasting value
Students are sometimes attracted to "fad" courses and "practical degrees." Neither of these has much lasting value. A few years ago taking a course on "Working with Windows XP" or "How to Program your Palm Pilot" would have been trendy. Now, having such courses on your transcript would be an embarassment. At Samford our emphasis is on those ideas that have stood the test of time.
