The College at Brockport’s School of The Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences offers students programs that engage the mind, body, and spirit. Our students are challenged to think and to do.
Our faculty’s passion and expertise is recognized nationwide. Professors have accumulated honors including the State University of New York’s prestigious Distinguished Professor and Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching and Creative Endeavor. We have Fulbright Scholars and regularly receive major national grants.
These gifted faculty members mentor as well as teach by working alongside students in a collaborative environment of discovery and achievement. This fosters an atmosphere of dedication to research, hands-on creativity, performance and critical intellectual enterprise.
We move those experiences beyond the walls of the classroom, where there are gems waiting to be discovered. Students can explore a field experience in Anthropology, an intensive workshop in Dance, a semester in Washington, DC through the Political Science and International Studies Department, a theatrical performance competition, intensive language immersion through study abroad programs or a wide variety of internships throughout the US and internationally. Our Writer’s Forum and Philosophic Exchange brings the world’s finest writers and thinkers to our campus. Our affiliations with world-class organizations such as Geva Theatre Center and Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra bring students together with some of the brightest and most creative minds in their fields.
Students graduate from the School ready to turn theory into practice and truly educated in a liberal context: embracing a multi-dimensional focus on the world, on its history, on what has been written and what is currently being expressed. Graduates go on to exciting careers as artists, journalists, sociologists, teachers, officials of government, researchers or continue their education in graduate schools nationwide.
