The Humanities Division offers courses to improve basic skills in writing and reading; courses that meet general education requirements; and courses of study to complete the associate degree and lower division transfer requirements.

An integrated program of study in the humanities provides students with a foundation in the liberal arts that prepares them for further study in many different disciplines. The varied courses in the division examine the breadth of human experience through the study, analysis, and discussion of literature, foreign languages, and philosophy in their cultural and historical context.
