College of Humanities & Fine Arts

Welcome to the College of Humanities and Fine Arts, where we bring together people from multiple disciplines and backgrounds to explore the arts, philosophies, languages, religions, literatures, and histories of diverse cultures. We are dedicated to the inherent value of arts and ideas and the importance of imaginative and creative work. Here students develop as critical and creative thinkers who are able to communicate clearly in written, oral, and artistic expression; who embrace intellectual curiosity; who cultivate an aesthetic awareness of their world and contemporary culture; who employ appropriate theories, tools, and technologies in pursuit of learning; who use their education to contribute to the common good; and who are at home in a complex world. We hope you enjoy exploring HFA and all we have to offer!
