Dean: J. Warren Casey, Ph.D.
The College of Arts & Humanities continues our original mission of training, nurturing and graduating students who are agile, decisive thinkers skilled in evaluation, reflection and problem-solving. Our graduates are prepared to continue their studies in graduate schools, enter into any one of more than a thousand professions in today’s workforce, or pursue careers that have yet to be created.
The college comprises seven academic departments:
A Medical Humanities major is offered as a collaboration between the College of Arts and Humanities and the College of Sciences , providing students opportunities to pursue diverse career paths in both the humanities and sciences in careers such as medicine, health care policy, law, public health, management, patient advocacy, health journalism, bioethics, and health care consulting, as well as in academic careers in teaching, writing, and researching in universities in narrative medicine, literature and health, or history and medicine. Rather than limiting the student to a single focus, this interdisciplinary study allows for room to create a career path specific to the desires of the individual while laying a foundation for advanced degrees.
A Medical Humanities minor is also offered.
The Department of English Language & Literature offers a Writer of Distinction Transcript Notation for undergraduate students.
