Statement of Mission

The history and legacy of USAO is inextricably connected to the Division of Arts and Humanities, which actively promotes creativity and performance. Its five departments - Art, Communication, Drama, Language and Literature, and Music - encourage critical thinking, global cultural awareness, and intense artistic experience. Students who graduate with majors or minors in these areas are able to communicate effectively through the power of words, the strength of images, or the energy of music. Students who major in other disciplines are encouraged to join the drama and musical productions. Faculty members in this Division are dedicated professional who are committed to their programs of study and their students. We encourage you to browse the web links for more information about the division.
