Dean's Statement

Welcome to the School of Arts and Humanities!

Our students acquire and develop the abilities of interpretation, imagination and communication necessary for success in the globally interconnected and change-intensive 21st century.

The Sciences investigate and explain the natural processes at work in the world...
The Humanities explore the ways in which we invest life with meaning and significance...
The Arts express the meaning and significance of our life.

We offer you an education that addresses two essential questions:

  • How can I make a good living?
  • How can I live a good, meaningful life?

Here you can study Literature, History, and Philosophy. You can major in the Visual and Performing Arts—concentrating in Dance, Music, Theater, Visual Arts, Art History, Film or Communication.

Even if you do not major in A&H, you can enhance your studies and your life by choosing one of our fascinating Minors.

Whatever your major, you can begin or continue to study foreign languages—including Spanish, Chinese and Arabic.

We even offer the unique opportunity for students pursuing other majors to continue their interest in the performing arts (e.g. Music, Theater, and Dance) by participating in our ensembles and productions.

The world needs people who can think, create and communicate. Our graduates become teachers, artists, lawyers, physicians, business entrepreneurs and generally fascinating people.

Meet a few of our graduates and students here.

I hope you decide to join our community.
