The Faculty of Arts and Humanities is at the core of the liberal arts experience at WSSU. Our teaching, research and service critically explore the depths of the human condition in art, culture, language, literature, and the world of ideas. The Faculty consists of a community of scholars in a range of academic programs housed in the departments of Art + Visual Studies, English, Liberal Studies, Music and World Languages and Culture. The Faculty is also home to the renowned Diggs Gallery, one of the nation’s premiere art galleries for African and African diasporic art. The Faculty is committed to cultivating a creative and dynamic intellectual community that generates fresh understandings of the complexity of the human experience.
