Humanities and Communications - Worldwide

Become an effective communicator and well-versed in cultural dynamics

The Department of Humanities & Communication in the College of Arts & Sciences is responsible for general education courses in English, Government, History, Humanities and Speech along with the bachelor's program in Communication. The department's full-time faculty members are experts in composition, literature, communication, humanities, ethics, government, history and world culture.

Coursework is designed to give students competency in oral and written communication and in the evaluation and interpretation of information. Students also develop an appreciation for the complexity of the human experience as it is expressed in literature, philosophy, aesthetics, and culture.

As an integral part of the general education program, courses in the Department of Humanities & Communication enable students to develop the skills of critical thinking and investigative inquiry. They also broaden and deepen students’ understanding and appreciation of the highly diverse and rapidly changing society in which they live.
