College of Arts & Humanities
Storytelling, one of the oldest cultural traditions in the world, stretches back for millennia. It can be found in every society in history and in every part of the globe. From a cave drawing or an ancient hieroglyphic found in a tomb to a piece of music theater, journalism, art, or film -- it’s storytelling. Stories are important because they remind of us of from where we come, who we are, and who we aspire to be.
We are the College of Arts and Humanities; and we create the next generation of storytellers because the world needs your voice.
