Who we are.

The College of Humanities and Fine Arts is only as excellent as the people who keep our classes engaging, our students goal-oriented, our offices running smoothly, and our research and creative activity on the forefront. None of our work would be possible without dedicated staff and experienced faculty, many of whom are interternationally recognized in their fields.

We work to inspire our students. In turn, they inspire us with their ability to explore established schools of thought and form new ideas. These students move on to a myriad of careers, shaping new realities in the world around them by applying the passion and skills they garner at UMass Amherst. HFA's alumni network is diverse, creative, far-reaching, and accomplished.
