Welcome to the College of Arts and Humanities
“The position of an art in the scale of human knowledge is, perhaps, the most eloquent symptom of the gulf between man’s progress in the physical sciences and his stagnation… in the humanities.”
― Ayn Rand, The Romantic Manifesto
Welcome to southwest Georgia’s citadel for creative and critical thinkers, scholastic explorers, academic and artistic practitioners, the College of Arts and Humanities at Albany State University.
The College of Arts and Humanities plays a vital role in the University’s unswerving commitment to “educating minds to lead in a changing world” by providing the majority of the core curriculum offerings for all undergraduate degree programs of the University. Additionally, all departments within the College offer outstanding academic and cultural programs in which faculty and students participate for the enrichment of the entire University community and its twenty-four county service area.
The College of Arts and Humanities offers programs in Art, Criminal Justice, English, History, Mass Communications, Music, Political Science, Psychology, Public Administration, Social Work, Sociology, Speech, and Theatre.
Please visit the websites of each of the Departments in the College of Arts and Humanities, learn about the various academic degree programs, meet the professors and students, and read about their numerous activities and accomplishments. I also invite you to attend one of the College’s lectures, colloquia, seminars, recitals, concerts, or exhibitions. Come for a visit—real or virtual. We’ll be expecting you.
