School of Arts and Humanities

In the School of Arts and Humanities, we study human experience and expressions — and we learn about ourselves in the process.

The study of arts and humanities promotes professional success and personal fulfillment. Benefits include strong reading and writing skills, critical thinking, interpersonal skills, clear communication, and an appreciation for different cultures.
