Excellent instruction in the visual, communication, theatrical, and musical arts takes place in small studio, lab, seminar, and discussion settings, as well as through activities outside the classroom environment. Practical experience, public presentation, and reflection are integrated into the educational process in many ways, such as through Internships and Co-op learning assignments, play production, musical performance and recording, visual arts production and exhibition, and the production and viewing of video, film, and design.

The School of Contemporary Arts encourages students to engage in Internships and Co-op experiences. External placements are facilitated in graphic and web design, print journalism, radio, television, professional theater, art galleries and museums.

The School of Social Science and Human Services

The School of Social Science and Human Services (SSHS) offers a rich and varied curriculum with well prepared courses and plenty of opportunities for fieldwork and experiential learning. Our educational philosophy is based on the following set of core values about education and life

To understand the complex worlds of people, at the level of individuals, small groups or whole societies or civilizations, it is imperative to have a sound historical grounding. History informs us how things came to be and, by implication, what constraints we face in trying to effect social change. Among the requirements for a Social Science and Human Services degree are introductory and upper level courses designed to mold historically and socially informed graduates.

Learning does not merely take place in the classroom. At least as important as listening to professors lecturing, are the direct “life experiences” each one of us has in our respective communities, provided these are accompanied by proper guidance and reflection.
