The mission of the Department of Humanities is to provide a broad liberal arts education that provides the intellectual foundation and practical application for pursuing their professional goals. Fine Arts, Design, English and Liberal Studies combine critical thinking with practical skills in communication technology, as well as oral, written, and artistic expression. Students are guided and mentored by Cheyney faculty and department-sponsored student organizations, and grow in their professional development through a variety of internship opportunities.
The number and variety of majors and minors allow students to combine programs as the foundation for a career or further study in graduate school. In both instances, the Liberal Studies experience serves to enhance the quality of our students’ lives and prepare them to be citizens of the global community.

Today’s mass media industries demand a diverse set of skills. At Cheyney, students have ample opportunities to grown and sharpen those skills. The Communication Arts program features the Ed Bradley Broadcast Center (a state-of-the-art television production studio with Final Cut Pro non-linear editing), and cable radio station WCUB.
The program offers three tracks that provide the experience students need to be successful in the communications field: Public Relations, Radio, and Television Production.
The Liberal Studies program offers Cheyney students the flexibility to build degree programs around their interests after completing Cheyney’s core curriculum and liberal studies core. Students work with an adviser to combine internship experiences, online portfolios, and other related learning experiences to gain a broad understanding of the liberal arts, and to prepare for the specific skills needed for their chosen careers. The program also focuses on developing successful communication skills that are highly prized by employers.
Six areas of concentration offer an interdisciplinary approach that allows students to gain breadth in the subject along with an understanding of the interconnections among principles of differing disciplines.
