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.
Lucas McMillan

from the Dean

I am excited that you are interested in the College of Arts & Humanities.  Our dynamic academic programs as well as our gallery, studios, recital halls, radio and TV stations, and computer labs enable students to be mentored by faculty.  Our students write for our campus newspaper and literary journal, showcase art in our gallery and in Uptown Greenwood, and perform on campus and throughout South Carolina.  Organizations need employees who are creative and have strong communication skills, so our alumni have careers in art, advertising, communications, design, education, music, and public relations as well as in areas of business and government service.  We would love to tell you about exciting things happening at Lander University!
