Welcome to


The College of Liberal Arts and Behavioral Sciences (COLABS) is one of the oldest colleges at Texas Southern University. It has been in existence since the 1940s. Through the decades, COLABS has educated thousands of students-- many of whom have gone on to distinguish themselves locally, nationally, and internationally. We are very proud of that history and deep tradition.

The mission of this college is to educate every individual to live knowledgeably, responsibly, and humanely. The College of Liberal Arts and Behavioral Sciences is composed of nine academic departments, all of which support that mission in terms of course content, curriculum, mentoring and advising, and programming.
