Mission Statement:
     To inspire the development and evaluation of historical, scientific, and reflective knowledge, and challenge students to be critical thinkers on a diverse and global scale to communicate well, to clarify values, and to appreciate aesthetics and the fine arts.  Liberal Arts instruction strives not only for the appreciation, but also the application of information and skills to encourage awareness, creativity, and problem solving for our students and the community.


     Located in the Clock Tower Center, the Liberal Arts Division is the largest academic division on campus, encompassing both transfer baccalaureate and career program offerings in the humanities, communications and social sciences.

     Liberal Arts humanities offerings include survey courses in humanities, foreign language, literature, music, and the arts.  Communications offerings encompass rhetoric, technical writing, creative writing, media, and speech.  Social Sciences courses include anthropology, criminology, geography, education, history, psychology, political science, sociology, and social work.

     Career programs in Liberal Arts include Education and Public Safety.  The Education Program offers Associates in Applied Science (A.A.S) degrees in Early Childhood Education and paraprofessional educator (teaching assistant) degrees in Early Childhood and  K-12.  Public Safety associates degree programs  include the Law Enforcement Program to train police officers, and  Corrections for officers in prisons/jails or in probation/parole work, and the Fire Science Program to train fire fighters and managers.  These programs also offer shorter term certificates.
