Dean Edward S. Inch
The College of Arts & Letters is dedicated to the vision that we will be a central resource with programs, student experiences, and engagement opportunities that matter to the health and vitality of the region’s creative and cultural economy. The study of the arts and humanities is at the heart of any university, at Sacramento State, we focus on using our creative and analytic skills, community engagement, innovative programs to support the success of our students and community.
Our College is composed of many fields bridging historical and significant traditions with contemporary and future-oriented field. Our students can study...
- painting, and also electronic art and animation
- critical thinking, and also bioethics
- Shakespeare, and also postcolonial women writers
- classical mythology, and also the culture of Hollywood
- rhetoric, and also multimedia communication
- typography, and also corporate identity
- counterpoint, and also jazz arranging
We encourage active learning, so our students sing, dance, create, write, argue, advocate and participate.
We form a bridge between traditional methods and practices with contemporary and forward-looking programs. We engage in discourse and spirited inquiry, but while "classroom" can mean a professor lecturing to a group of students, it can also refer to a virtual gathering by Internet or as well as the greater Sacramento community as our students explore their world in action. Throughout, we investigate, we teach and we learn.
We welcome our students as the leaders of the coming generation, those who will shape the world we haven't yet imagined.
