Why Arts and Humanities?

The Arts and Humanities major addresses the core elements of human expression from historical, critical, comparative, and practice-based perspectives. It teaches students about art in human life and provides a context for students to develop their own arts practice. The intellectual and practical skills developed in the Arts and Humanities major prepares students for a wide range of careers including work in art history, arts administration, art practice, art education, music, museums, performing arts, publishing, academia and journalism.

Alumni Voices

KATHY POH, CLASS OF 2020

I chose the Arts and Humanities major because I see the arts as a field that I will always have endless fascination for. I enjoy thinking about ways that rules and languages of artistic mediums can be bent to create new methods of telling stories.

ANDREW KWAN, CLASS OF 2020

I see life as a series of stories; and I majored in Arts and Humanities to learn how to tell these stories in the best ways possible. I also pursued a minor in Psychology as I am keen to integrate discussions about mental health into my work.
