The mission of the Humanities and Fine Arts Department is to increase the cultural knowledge of students and to develop their skills in artistic production, communication, and cultural analysis. This mission is accomplished through the study of art, communication, drama, film, foreign languages, music, philosophy, and religion. This increase in knowledge and skill will give students a greater understanding of the cultural world around them and the ability to impact that cultural world with their own creative endeavors.
The Humanities and Fine Arts Department offers courses in Art, Communication, Drama, Humanities (including Film), Foreign Languages, Music, Philosophy, and Religion. A primary goal of the department is to prepare students with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully transfer to a four-year college or university.
The Humanities and Fine Arts Department also offers Associate in Fine Arts degrees (AFA degrees) for those planning to pursue major study in the arts at the four-year level. The Associate in Fine Arts degree is offered with pre-majors in Art, Drama, and Music and Music Education. See Associate in Fine Arts (pp. 70-78 of catalog) for more details.
The Humanities and Fine Arts Department will move into a new, state-of-the-art facility in the fall of 2015. This new Humanities and Fine Arts Center will include a 1500-seat theater, art and music studios, classrooms, and offices for instructors.
