Welcome to the College of Arts and Humanities
The College of Arts and Humanities is dedicated to the success of our students. Our programs integrate rigorous academic inquiry, promote creative and scholarly excellence, and encourage community engagement, providing a strong basis for personal growth and professional preparation. A distinguished, talented faculty and a skilled, dedicated staff create an environment in which students flourish.
The college comprises nine academic departments representing the Arts (Art, Music, Theatre Arts) and the Humanities (English, Communication Studies, Foreign Languages, History, Journalism, Philosophy) as well as the Interdisciplinary Center for Global Diversity (Africana Studies, Asian Studies, Latin American Studies, Women's Studies) and the Center for the Humanities. In addition, the Doudna Fine Arts Center and the Tarble Arts Center, major performance and visual arts resources are part of the college and provide EIU and east-central Illinois with a wide variety of arts events and exhibitions, and cultural programming. Our academic programs and numerous outreach activities ensure the arts and humanities, the very foundations of a democratic society, are accessible both on our campus and throughout our region and our state.
