College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities

Welcome to the College Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of West Florida. Our disciplines study people. They develop well-educated, imaginative, inquisitive, communicative, adaptable, and empathetic graduates. These skills endure and set students to demonstrate the 21st Century skills necessary to succeed in today's workplace and as lifetime learners. Students work collaboratively with engaging faculty in small class settings to hone their critical thinking, oral and written communication, project management and professional development. They spend time thinking and writing, reading and discussing, observing and performing -- qualities that set them apart from their peers in the marketplace. Choose undergraduate studies in more than 25 major concentrations, 15 minor concentrations or graduate studies from six different disciplines.

Dr. Jamin Wells grew up in Rhode Island immersed in the maritime world. Alongside his father, who established one of the area's first police dive teams and later opened a dive shop, Wells began diving at age 10 in the cold, murky New England water and spent his youth spearfishing, racing sailboats and diving on shipwrecks. He worked as a dive instructor as an undergraduate and then paid for graduate school by dredging marinas and building docks.
