Critical Thinkers.
Skilled Leaders.

Outstanding skills essential in today’s technological and multi-cultural society are critical thinking and proficiency in written and spoken communication, skills that are the core of the humanities-based Department of English, Modern Languages, and Liberal Arts. Beyond this, the study of humanities expands consciousness and deepens awareness of both our cultural heritage and contemporary society. Careful thinking and critical reading can also strengthen tolerance and appreciation of cultures besides our own.
