The college encompasses a wide spectrum of disciplines that generally fall into three major areas:
The Social Sciences study how human beings function in groups, how groups and societies interact with each other, and how groups empower or marginalize individuals or subgroups. Major programs in this division include Anthropology; Black Studies; Communication; Communication Management; Journalism and Promotional Communication; Film, Television and Interactive Media; Criminology; Economics; Political Science; Sociology; Social Work; and Women’s and Gender Studies.
The Humanities explore how humans perceive themselves and the world, how belief systems and values inform the judgments and the choices people make, and how we communicate. Major programs in this division include English, History, Linguistics, Spanish, French, Philosophy,
and Comparative Religion.
The Fine and Performing Arts reveal humans at their most creative – in their ability to shape and transform how we see, hear, and order the world around us. Major programs in this discipline include Art, Music, and Theatre.
Liberal Studies is a broad and interdisciplinary program of study that crosses the boundaries of science, social science, and humanities.
