In keeping with the College's mission and its motto "veritas est lux" (truth is light) faculty members within the Division provide students with the individual attention necessary to spark excellence in critical thinking, scholarly and creative writing, public speaking, and artistic performance. Dedicated professionals within each department seek to nurture gifts already evident in their students and to facilitate the development of hidden talent.
The following majors and minors are offered in this division:
Students majoring in English will be prepared for graduate school in English, Education, Journalism, and Law; they will also have qualifications for beginning a career in advertising, editing, or journalism. Students majoring in Music will be prepared for graduate school in music or music education; they may also seek careers as professional musicians. Students majoring in Philosophy will be prepared for graduate study in that discipline or for the seminary; a degree in philosophy is often the best route to many professional careers, including public service and civil service, as it provides students with the basic tools for clear, critical thought.
