Departments and Programs

The College of Arts and Humanities empower ethically minded students to reach their creative, intellectual, and leadership potential.

“The college has always struck me as a wonderful blend of departments and programs that are diverse in terms of their goals, methodologies, practices, and curriculum. Exposure to such methodological heterogeneity across the arts and humanities serves CAH students well and can be a critical foundation of the education of all CWU students.” Jason Knirck, Interim Dean of the CAH
