Here in the Humanities Division, we concentrate on studying those things that make us human—what we think, what we feel, and how we communicate these things to each other. We offer classes in English and other modern languages, in philosophy, in literature, in mass communications, in music and music engineering, in the visual arts, in theatre, and in library technical assistantship. Our classes incorporate up-to-date technology and high-quality instruction by accomplished and supportive professors who have a passion for teaching as well as for their subjects.
Whether you want to attain an associate’s degree or just learn more about one of your particular interests, we offer the excitement of small classes where you get to know your professor in an active learning environment and, whenever appropriate, attain hands-on experience in using the tools, materials, and concepts of what you are studying. This approach is not only more engaging but it gives students who transfer to four-year programs a solid foundation as well as a head start in practical experience.
We invite you to browse through our programs. Walk through the hallways of the Humanities Building, take a look at our classrooms in the Communication Center, or come to a performance in the Atkinson Theatre. Better yet, visit the Humanities advisor or a professor who teaches the classes you are interested in to get answers to your questions. We invite you to share our excitement about the Humanities!
