Abstract:

The College of Arts and Humanities collection consists of meeting minutes from the office of the college, as well as different departments that were a part of the college. This collection encompasses the different names that the college had over the span of the institution. The collection is divided into two series: Administrative Files and Subject Files.

Historical Note:

The College of Arts and Humanities began as the Division of Fine and Applied Arts in 1938. At that time, the only departments were Art, Industrial Education and Music. In 1948, the Division of Fine and Applied Arts offered Home Economics as another major. In 1965, the name changed to the School of Arts and Science, merging the Division of Fine and Applied Arts with the Division of Language and Literature and the Division of Social Studies. At this point, the school offered Art, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Dental Assisting, Economics, English, Foreign Languages: French, German, Russian, and Spanish, Teaching a Foreign Language, Geography, History, Interdisciplinary Studies, Science, Mathematics and Astronomy, Music, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Sociology, and Speech. In 1968, the Honors department was added to the school.

In 1978, the name changed again, to the College of Arts and Humanities. At this point, the college offered American Studies, Art, English, Foreign Languages, History, Honor's Program, Humanities, Mass Communications, Music, Open Studies, Peace Studies, Philosophy, Pre-Theology, Scandinavian Studies, and Speech and Theater Arts. In 1980, the college dropped Peace Studies and in 1984 the college offered Religious Studies. Religious Studies and Pre-Theology were both dropped in 1996.

The College of Arts and Humanities, as of 2010, offers several different types of degrees. There is the Bachelor of Fine Arts for Art, English, and Theater. The Bachelor of Arts is offered for Art, Communication Studies, Dance, English, French, German, Humanities, Mass Communications, Music, Philosophy, Philosophy-Politics-Economics, Scandinavian Studies, Spanish, and Theater. There is also the Bachelor of Music for Music Students. The Bachelor of Science offers Cognitive Science, Communication Studies, Dance, English, French, German, Mass Communication, Music Industry, Open Studies, Philosophy, Philosophy-Politics-Economics, Spanish, and Theater as majors. The College of Arts and Humanities offers an Associates of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies, and a Certificate Program in Technical Studies.
