Arts & Humanities

Learn to understand and interpret the world around you - and perhaps discover yourself in the process.

In these Arts and Humanities courses at HCC, we invite you to explore the world and its peoples through the arts, the media, philosophy,and religious and cultural studies. Our coursework is designed to spark your imagination, to enhance your perception, and cultivate your talents. At the same time, you will learn to think independently and critically and to communicate articulately in both the written and spoken word. These important life skills are also key to success in a wide range of careers. 

Located in the beautiful Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center, the Arts and Humanities division is the creative and cultural heart of the college. We offer associate degree programs and curricula designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year institution or school of the arts, as well as develop and sharpen marketable skills.
