Eastern Kentucky University's College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences (CLASS) provides education in the arts, philosophy, literature, languages, and social sciences– fields that help us to understand ourselves and others and provide meaning and richness to our world. CLASS represents EKU’s enduring commitment to a liberal arts education as the intellectual foundation for work, life, and citizenship.

The College was created on July 1, 2016 as part of the restructuring of the former College of Arts and Sciences.
