Welcome to the Department of Arts and Humanities

The department, which encompasses nine academic programs, views the study of education as broad and vital. We see intellectual and creative ideas and practices as extending beyond the traditional concerns of schooling. Thus, each program shares a concern with the learner's construction of knowledge, the art and methods of teaching, the realities of the contemporary classroom, the relationship of schools to their communities, and the underlying philosophies of school reform.
