The largest academic unit at the College, our Department prides itself upon its intellectual and artistic richness, its diversity, and its distinctive approaches to education. The Department consists of ten academic programs along with many subprograms nested within. Our major areas of scholarly inquiry are art, art administration, dance, music, history, philosophy, applied linguistics, bilingualism, English and literacies, and social studies. These areas of research, practice, and instruction, collectively, address human wisdom, capacity, potential, and creativity.
Each of our nine degree and three non-degree programs offer our students the skills and knowledge they need to thrive and assume leadership in today’s changing cultural and educational environment.
