The School of Arts & Humanities presents students with academic programs grounded in a tradition of the liberal arts. Such programs provide students and faculty members with opportunities to broaden their understanding of the human experience, to enrich their own human potential and that of other people, and to enhance those skills in thought processes and communication which are essential for effective living.

Through the school, students may pursue majors in fine art, art education, communication and new media studies, graphic design, liberal arts, and music; they may earn minors in American studies, art history, communication and new media studies, creative writing, English, history, music, philosophy, photography, religious studies, and an interdisciplinary minor in ethics.  In addition to major, minor, and certificate programs, faculty members in humanities offer all students a set of department courses that satisfy the requirements in the liberal arts core.
