The College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences empowers students to critically examine their place in the world: to imagine, communicate, collaborate, create, and transform. Our graduates are engaged global citizens who have studied a wide range of topics, such as art, communication, film, language, and psychology. Our students learn to apply values, interdisciplinary knowledge, and skills, equipping them to provide creative and socially responsible solutions for the future.
Please visit our Office of the Dean page for a welcome message from Dr. Juanita Cole, Dean.
The CAHSS Building is located on Divarty Street between the Business and Information Technology Building and Beach Hall. The ground floor features classrooms, the dean's suite, the RND amphitheater, and VPA art gallery. The second floor houses language and cinematic arts classrooms and most of our departments.
CAHSS students are dedicated to serving the community. Not only do they serve in the local Tri-County area, but also across the nation and the globe. Using the skills they have learned in the classroom — whether it be language, art, communications, psychology, or music — our accomplished students aim to make the world a better place.
