College of Arts and Letters

Welcome to the College of Arts and Letters!

Over a century ago, the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration recognized the importance of educating the whole person when they began teaching young students in the La Crosse area. This tradition continues to guide educational directions at Viterbo through liberal arts and professional programs in the fine arts and humanities; Foundations, Ways of Thinking, and Mission Seminars in the core curriculum; and serving as a vital center for the arts and scholarship in the La Crosse region.
