UCR College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences
- UCR College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences
The College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences at the University of California, Riverside, commonly referred to as "CHASS", can trace its history to the founding undergraduate institution at UCR, the College of Letters and Science, which first opened in 1954. (During a consolidation period in the early 1970s, its natural science departments merged with UCR's College of Agriculture, founded in 1958, to form the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences.) It is today a vibrant and critical research and teaching oriented community.
