The College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences supports the mission of the university by offering students quality academic programs in the humanities, fine arts, performing arts, and social sciences. We are a community of scholars and teachers who are dedicated to educating students to become leaders in their careers, active members of their communities, and lifelong learners.


The College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences is a welcoming collaboration of educators and students who are dedicated to fostering excellence, embracing diversity, and inspiring innovation in a global society.

The College offers 18-degree programs. In addition, by offering courses to support the General Education program, the College provides students with a broad foundation in the liberal arts. The guiding principle of General Education is that each person who graduates from college should possess the ability to think critically and analytically, to communicate information and ideas effectively, to know the history and its role in shaping the present, to use technology to enhance learning and to understand human life more deeply and productively through familiarity with the work of writers, thinkers, and pioneers in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.

The college comprises four departments: Fine and Performing Arts, Humanities, Social and Behavioral Sciences, Communications, Compositions and Languages. The college also houses the Louis Stokes Center on Aging, the Mass Communications Center, and numerous federally and state-funded research programs.
