Welcome to the College of Arts and Humanities, which is academic home for approximately 1,400 undergraduate and 80 graduate students, 150 faculty, and 20 staff members. Although we are a diverse community, we share a passion for the arts and humanities and for teaching and learning. Our disciplines of art, communication, English, history, music, philosophy and religious studies, theatre arts, and world languages are central not only to the education of all students at Central, but also to living and working in the 21st century. We invite you to share in our passion by exploring this website, taking our classes, reading our publications, and attending our numerous cultural activities, including concerts, plays, exhibits, lectures, workshops, and many more.
The 21st century has been called the "communication and information age," and it demands global awareness and local engagement from each and every one of us. Working with other academic units on campus, our faculty offer an innovative global curriculum and involve students in discovering new knowledge and in applying what they learn to society at large. We graduate students who are "scholar/artist citizens"whose learning involves real world problem solving and civic engagement. Most importantly, we cultivate in our students certain qualities of mind - curiosity, imagination, tolerance - that make them lifelong learners, successful workers, and engaged citizens. The College of Arts and Humanities is a vibrant and friendly community, and I strongly encourage you to visit or to make it your academic home.
