Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences is the liberal arts college at East Carolina University. It is composed principally of departments in mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

In 1941, the Board of Trustees approved an undergraduate degree program in liberal arts disciplines for students wanting to pursue a non-teaching degree. When East Carolina College was elevated to university status in 1967, the School of Arts and Sciences became the College of Arts and Sciences, the home of the liberal arts. The school is named for Thomas Harriot, a cartographer, historian, and surveyor that took part in Sir Walter Raleigh's second expedition to Virginia.
