Arts & Humanities

The arts and humanities are alive and well at Columbia College! In the studio and performing arts, we offer classes like drawing, painting, photography in film, digital or field, introduction to drama and oral interpretation and expression, as well as music theory and performance with voice or instruments. Our humanities courses include courses that help students explore human cultures, religions, languages and philosophy.
