Humanities Department


The Humanities Department will contribute to the college community’s broad understanding and informed appreciation of the humanities, including the rhetorical arts, literature, modern languages and philosophy.


In concert with the vision and philosophy of College of the Mainland, the Humanities Department will:

  • Offer students quality education in English, speech, modern languages, humanities and philosophy.
  • Help students improve reading, writing, speaking, listening and critical thinking skills.
  • Provide students with the opportunity to develop their abilities “to use computer-based technology in communicating, solving problems and acquiring information” (Co-Board).
