Explore. Create. Discover.

Societies throughout history have generated scholars, artists, writers and thinkers who have raised fundamental questions to better understand and express themselves and their environment.

As the cultural and creative heart of the UMass flagship campus, the College of Humanities and Fine Arts brings together scholars and artists from a wide range of disciplines and fosters the continued examination of the human experience. Through the exploration of ideas, creation of new work, and discovery of themselves and our shared experiences, students broaden perspectives, apply knowledge, and prepare to make contributions to their communities, the workplace, and the world.
