Arts Faculty The Division of the Arts offers programs in art history, dance, film and electronic arts, music, photography, studio arts, and theater and performance. Theoretical understanding and practical skills alike are developed through production and performance in all disciplines. In the course of their program studies, students in the arts also develop aesthetic criteria that can be applied to other areas of learning. Students may undertake the arts for different reasons—as a path to a vocation or an avocation, or simply as a means of cultural enrichment.
These specializations begin in prison and continue after students have been released, through paid internships and fellowships, specialized training, and career guidance.
Public Health The Public Health curricular specialization is designed to prepare students for careers in the rapidly changing fields of Public Health, healthcare, and community health.
Students who complete the entire seven-course specialization are proficient in the core competencies of Public Health graduate programs, including research design and implementation.
Urban Farming and Sustainability The Urban Farming and Sustainability program prepares students for careers in farming, food justice, regional food systems, and sustainability.
The program combines traditional academic coursework with hands-on gardening experience and direct civic participation. Computer Science Students preparing for opportunities in the field of computer science, or computer-based work in other fields, can pursue coursework in data structures, computer architecture, programming languages, web development, and media design.
