Our arts majors prepare for careers across a wide range of industries, from visual and performing arts to arts education, in positions as varied as arts administrator to screen and stage performer.


Our humanities majors take a multidisciplinary approach to education, critically examining and evaluating cultures and traditions. Their future career opportunities include language, law, museum work, publishing, sales and writing.
