There’s always something new happening at Fairmount College

Even though Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the oldest academic college at Wichita State, it has continued to innovate to stay relevant and responsive in a fast-changing world. One way is by ensuring every degree offered has applied learning or research opportunities built-in. These activities give students practical experience while helping them build relationships in their fields of study. Whether students dream of working in front of a television camera or in a chemistry lab, they can experience it – not just read about it.
