College of Arts & Humanities

Students in the College of Arts & Humanities explore and develop their talents as musicians, visual artists, designers, media producers, and writers.
Mark Rollins

from the Dean

The arts and humanities continue to thrive at Lander University. We have recently launched new programs in all of our departments, including two graduate degrees in Art + Design, and we have redesigned others to make them more flexible, efficient, and relevant for students. We have more new programs on the way! We have also hired additional faculty and improved and expanded our facilities to serve our growing enrollment. Most importantly, our talented and supportive faculty continue to provide students with a top-notch education that prepares them to launch their careers or pursue further study in graduate school. Our faculty and I would love to meet you and tell you more about the exciting things happening in the College of Arts & Humanities!
