Dean's Welcome

Dr. Joe Delap, College of Arts & Sciences

It is my honor and pleasure to welcome you to the College of Arts and Sciences at Athens State University! As you begin or continue your educational journey with us, we look forward to exploring, learning, and growing together in ways that shape your bright future and that of our state, region, nation, and world.

We are here to support your success, should you find your academic home with us. To that end, the faculty and I would be happy to speak with you about any of our thirty-six majors, thirty minors, six certificates, or our graduate program in Religious Studies. We would also be delighted to meet with you or help arrange a campus visit.

On a personal note, I hope to see you here on our beautiful, historic campus, whether it’s for a special event, walking to class, or walking at graduation. Finally, please feel free to reach out to me, if there is any way I can assist you.

Joe Delap

Interim Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences
