Welcome from the Dean

  • Welcome to the College of Humanities, Education, and Social Sciences!  We have a broad array of academic programs through which students gain essential skills in critical thinking, public speaking, impactful writing, and collaboration that prepare them for fulfilling careers across numerous disciplines and professional settings.  Our graduates are highly successful on the job market and in pursuing graduate and professional school beyond the bachelor's degree, depending on their own particular goals.

    Our programs offer opportunities for students to explore the world from many perspectives. Education in the humanities allows students to become global citizens and inspired leaders by learning about culture and diversity through study and service at home and abroad. Graduate programs continue that tradition by honing expertise and applying theory to practice.

    Current in their fields of expertise, our faculty members create dynamic and engaging learning communities where students grapple with essential questions of the human experience, and grow personally and professionally. Students have numerous opportunities to work individually with faculty members to further develop their knowledge and skills.

    I hope you will explore the program information found here and see what possibilities there are to discover.
