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.  Many of these courses can be used to fulfill requirements for the various degrees offered by CFCC.  One 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.  See the CFCC catalog for more details.
