Arts & Humanities Orientation

 

Welcome Message From The Dean

Welcome to the School of Arts and Humanities (ARHU) at Stockton University.  We’re glad you’re here.  You come to us at a moment of national crisis—but also a moment when the need for the skills and perspectives the arts and humanities provide has never been greater.  You are in the right place.

ARHU programs will provide you diverse perspectives and approaches to the human experience through coursework, internships, projects, and events.  They will give you the skills--innovation, research, critical thinking, communication, complex problem-solving, teamwork, and ethical reasoning--to tackle the issues we face. 

The good news here is that you’ll be able to develop these skills while studying what you love.  You’ll work closely with accomplished artists in Performing and Visual Arts.  Ask them about additional innovative learning opportunities provided through our Dance Company Residencies, Broadway Arts/TV Sitcom Labs, Design for Community Partners course, and Noyes Museum internships, to name a few.  Ask our Communication Studies faculty about getting involved with our radio station, WLFR, with our Community Television Partners internship, or with our award-winning student chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. 

Ask the faculty in Historical Studies, Languages and Culture Studies, Literature, Philosophy and Religion, Africana Studies, and American Studies) about doing archival research for publication and/or presentation in regional, national, and international venues.  Ask about interdisciplinary humanities projects sponsored by ARHU’s South Jersey Culture & History Center, Pappas Center for Interdisciplinary Hellenic Studies, Stockton Text Center, and the African-American Museum of Southern New Jersey.

Consider the value in our newly launched 5-year dual degree in Literature (BA)/American Studies (MA).  And ask about taking a course in Africana Studies—where you’ll find the interdisciplinary curricula and diverse methods of inquiry meant for this moment.

Once again, welcome to ARHU.  Let’s make change.

And email the dean to find out why she believes, with the poet Percy Shelley, that “Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world”:  lisa.honaker@stockton.edu.
