Liberal Arts Division
Welcome to the Liberal Arts Division at College of DuPage
The Liberal Arts Division offers areas of study in Humanities, Communications, Fine and Applied Arts, as well as coursework in developmental reading and writing, ESL and a variety of Honors courses. The Performing Arts and Study Abroad also provide students a considerable range of options within the Liberal Arts Division.
The Liberal Arts curriculum is broad and rigorous, and provides much of the General Education requirements for transfer to four-year programs. Students with an interest in the arts can pursue an Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.).
The breadth of options in the Liberal Arts Division include coursework through a variety of delivery modes in History, Humanities, English, Speech, Mass Communications, Philosophy/Religious Studies, and nine languages. The Applied Arts programs include transfer and occupational courses in Graphic Design, Motion Picture/Television, and Photography. Both associates degrees and certificates are offered in the Applied Arts programs.
Fine and Performing Arts opportunities for students are exciting and varied. Student performance groups and professional ensembles—including drama, chorus, orchestras, and jazz groups—yield rich experiences and fill the calendar at the McAninch Arts Center. The work of visual artists is presented in the Gahlberg Gallery and the work of students in the Wings Gallery.
Unique to the Liberal Arts Division are Study Abroad language immersion programs in Costa Rica, Spain, Germany, Italy, China, Japan and France. These programs help students apply what they learn as they study in the host country.
The Liberal Arts faculty are noted for their excellence in the classroom, and many have published books and presented or performed at national events and conferences. The quality of students' work is a testament to the faculty's talents and commitment to fine teaching.
We appreciate the opportunity to greet you and look forward to hearing from you.
