The College traces its origins to the year 1909 when the then Silliman Institute offered its first classical two-year A.B. course. In 1921, the College obtained recognition for its offering of a four-year A.B. degree. At about the same time, a science course was also offered, a B.S. degree major in Chemistry.
During its early years of existence and up to the Second World War, the College operated under two independent colleges: the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Sciences, then administered by Silliman’s Department of Instruction. Over the years, these two colleges operated independently of each other. The departments that existed under the set-up were: Bible (1902); Biology (1909); Chemistry (1909); Mathematics (1920); English (1923); and Spanish (1936). In 1947, the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Sciences merged to become the College of Arts and Sciences.
