Creativity. Culture. Collaboration.

College of Arts and Humanities

“The arts and humanities fuel innovation across the university by the creative process itself. The arts and humanities help our students see the world through different lenses. They are where you learn to write and communicate more effectively, explore creativity, and study culture to better understand how we interact with each other."

—Dean Jeff Moore
