Humanities and Media Studies

The Humanities and Media Studies Department offers a variety of courses—freshman English, literature, communications, music, theater, film, foreign languages, and creative writing. What unites them, giving them continuity, is the department's mission: to recognize and foster the relationship between visual and written texts; to instill within students critical thinking, reading, and writing skills that will inspire them in their professional lives for intellectual and creative growth; and to promote understanding and appreciation for the diverse cultures within the U.S. and throughout the world.
