The College of Arts and Humanities is committed to the University’s goal of providing a comprehensive undergraduate program of liberal studies as a foundation for all students. Its mission is to instill knowledge, skills and values that will enable students to emerge as responsible citizens. Specifically, the College seeks to provide intensive training in a discipline, to enhance the development of talented performing and creative artists, and to develop in students a capacity for critical judgment, the ability to communicate effectively, and a sense of ethical responsibility.

In addition, the College sponsors many cultural activities and programs which are both aesthetically and intellectually stimulating. The mission of the College is complemented by a select graduate program.
