A Message from the Dean

The School Arts and Sciences provides its students with an educational background that enhances critical and creative thinking, both scholarly and artistically. The pursuit of knowledge, wisdom, intellectual freedom, artistic expression, and enhancement of the cultural and spiritual lives of individuals is our first priority. This is done by encouraging analytical and creative thinking and by providing a friendly environment where students feel at ease communicating with their instructors and following their dreams.

The School of Arts and Sciences consists of two departments (Interior Design and Graphic Design). There are advisors for each program whose ultimate goal is to make sure they assist students if any help is needed. We are here to help you make the right choices in line with your future plans and ambitions. Our ultimate goal is to make sure that you receive a priceless quality education while providing a rich and friendly atmosphere where the relationships you make are unforgettable. We also aim to foster and maintain quality academic programs that keep pace with growing technological advances and educational methods.
