School of Arts and Humanities

The School of Arts and Humanities comprises departments and programs that seek to expand students’ knowledge of history, languages and literatures, the arts, and human culture, preparing them to be articulate communicators, critical thinkers, and well-rounded global citizens.



  • Shantel Jordan - Communication
  • At Meredith College, Rimsha Afzal, ’15, was able to pursue both of her passions: theatre and biology
  • Julia Dent, ’15, isn’t afraid of going out of her way to get what she wants or taking a few extra steps to make sure she succeeds.

Majors within the School of Arts and Humanities are diverse, ranging from art education to political science, from criminology to Spanish, from studio art to theatre. Through an emphasis on liberal arts and professional preparation, students acquire skills and knowledge that are highly valued by employers and graduate programs such as problem solving, analysis, and teamwork.
