College of Arts and Sciences

First Floor, Mañacop Building

Liberal Arts was a premier offering of the former Philippine Wesleyan College (PWC) when the school opened in 1946.

In 1948, the Liberal Arts Department was upgraded to the College of Liberal Arts.

In 1969, it was renamed the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) to reflect its growth and expansion into the sciences as well as its changing emphasis in line with the developments in education.

The College of Arts and Sciences contributes towards the attainment of the University’s vision, mission and goal through a set of specific objectives. Being the center for General and Liberal Arts and Sciences education within the Wesleyan University– hilippines (WUP) system, CAS aims for:

  • inter-disciplinary;
  • development of the ability to think critically;
  • development of national consciousness and responsible citizenship; and
  • development of the value of service to the people.

CAS is proud of its long and successful record of voluntary accreditation. Since it achieved an accredited status in 1983, the Arts and Sciences program administered by CAS has undergone a series of re-survey visits by the accrediting team of the Association of Christian Schools, Colleges and Universities-Accrediting Agency Inc. (ACSCU-AAI). The re-survey visit on September 25 to 29, 2000 resulted in the grant of a five-year re-accredited status from December 2000 to December 2005. The ACSCU-AAI Board further invited the program to apply for Level III status. In due time, the Arts and Sciences program was awarded a Level III accredited status.

The last re-survey visit was made on March 6 to 10, 2006 resulting in a five-year re-accredited status from April 2006 to April 2011. The ACSCU-AAI Board further invited the program to apply for Level III status. An application was consequently made resulting in the Arts and Sciences program being awarded a Level III re-accredited status for the second time. This Level III accreditation contributed to the grant of Autonomous Status to Wesleyan University-Philippines by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

Taking advantage of the University’s Autonomous Status, the College of Arts and Sciences offered a new program, BS Psychology, effective SY 2015-2016 without securing a permit from CHED as long as the minimum requirements as embodied in the existing policies, standards and guidelines of that degree program are complied with. BS Psychology is a preparatory course for students who plan to take up Medicine or Law.

To meet the needs of the changing times, the General Education subjects offered to students in all colleges of Wesleyan University-Philippines have been placed under the academic and administrative supervision of CAS. This has virtually transformed CAS into a super-college where all WU-P students need to pass through as they prepare for their chosen courses.
