Consisting of five departments housing 21 programs, the School of Arts and Sciences is Langston’s largest school of study and the academic heart of the university.

We are committed to providing functional degrees that prepare our students to be leaders in a diverse and ever-changing workforce.

With 17 bachelor’s and four associate degree opportunities, we are expanding the study of the humanities, as well as the social, natural and formal sciences, and we lead recruitment in some of the fastest growing industries in the region.


That Langston students conduct research for NASA?

The Langston University NASA Advanced Research in Biology Center (LUNAR-BC) was founded with a $4.9 million grant from NASA to work to build countermeasures for astronaut’s immune systems.

That Langston’s STEM student retention rate far exceeds the national average?

Langston offers a variety of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) degrees. From Chemistry to Computer Design and everything in between, our STEM students excel.

That the Broadcast Journalism degree is one of Langston’s fastest-growing programs?

Thanks to a generous gift from Griffin Media and an opportune partnership with the NBCU Academy, Langston’s Broadcast Journalism program is growing and improving faster than ever. Students get hands on experience with written, broadcast and radio journalism through the LU Gazzette, LUTV and KALU radio as well mentorship from industry professionals through NBCU Academy, and that’s just the start!



New Home for Journalism

Not only does Langston University have a new home for journalism, the former News 9 building will also host the Langston University Oklahoma City Campus. We are very grateful for the generosity given to us by the Griffin Family and Griffin Media. We moved into this building in January 2023.
