School of Arts & Humanities


About the School

The School of Arts & Humanities is composed of four departments: English & Visual Art, History, Modern Languages, and Philosophy & Religion. The majors offered by these programs emphasize the development of creativity and skills like analysis, empathy, sociability, and communication. As a result, if you choose a major in the arts or humanities, you will develop not only your skills as an artist, you will also learn how to think creatively and solve problems.

These people-focused skills are in high demand in the current job market. They are also the hardest skills to computerize and outsource. As a result, students who study the arts and humanities at Westminster are not only well-prepared for the job market upon graduation, but also have the skills required for life-long professional success.
