Dean's Message

Welcome to the Lindquist College of Arts & Humanities. Students in our college explore human experiences and creations through programs of study in Communication, Dance, English, Film Studies, Music, Theatre, and Visual Art & Design, and World Languages & Cultures. In each of our disciplines, we embrace difference and engage in academic inquiry and artistic expression in meaningful ways. We learn to tell stories that are vital to us as individuals and as a community. We see your brilliance and find ways to help your brilliance shine more brightly. 

With committed faculty, student-focused teaching, and state-of-the-art facilities, we commit to providing an education that offers both professional skills and opportunities to ask and answer the crucial questions of our times.
