The Tulane University School of Liberal Arts (SLA) is a part of Tulane University and was created in the fall of 2005, pursuant to a university-wide Renewal Plan which in part separated the School of Liberal Arts from the School of Science and Engineering.
The School of Liberal Arts is made up of 15 departments and 21 interdisciplinary programs in the humanities, the social sciences and the fine arts. The academic departments include Anthropology, Art (Studio and Art History), Classical Studies, Communication, Economics, English, French and Italian, German and Slavic Studies, History, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Sociology, Spanish and Portuguese, Theatre and Dance. SLA is currently housed in Newcomb Hall, the Woldenberg Art Center, Dixon Hall and McWilliams Hall on the Newcomb Quad. SLA Departments and programs are also located in Dinwiddie, Tilton, Hebert, Jones and Norman Mayer Halls.
