Yale Officers: Faculty of Arts and Sciences


The inaugural Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) was appointed in 2014, inheriting a configuration of responsibilities previously held by the Provost (financial oversight of the FAS) and the Deans of Yale College and the Graduate School (academic oversight of the faculty of the FAS). The FAS Dean oversees the 53 departments and programs that compose the FAS, which are configured into four divisions: Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences, and the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
