Are you fascinated by the whole range of human experience? Do you want to grapple with cultural, social, historical, philosophical and political ideas? Do you want to study systems of meaning, language, cultures and ideas? 

The School of Liberal Arts and Cultures will collaborate with you on your journey to engage in critical thought around these concepts and their impacts, both locally and globally, and to develop skills in expressing yourself through speech and writing. With a broad range of courses and degrees from the Humanities, Social Sciences and Communication, the School of Liberal Arts and Cultures is your pathway for exploration or future growth through transferring to a four-year college or university.
