Welcome to the Division of Arts, Communications, & Social Sciences (ACSS)

We are an eclectic community of faculty and staff who focus on helping our students foster a reflective understanding of what it means to be uniquely human in this ever-changing world. 

In this Division, faculty will guide you in developing intellectual curiosity, communication proficiencies, aesthetic and artistic expression, social science inquiry, and critical thinking skills that you will need to balance work and play as you seek to be a responsible and productive citizen in a diverse and complex society.

We urge you to examine our course offerings and talk to a college counselor to take full advantage of the opportunities offered to you by this Division.  We love teaching and we look forward to working with you in this life-changing experience.
