Art, Music and the Humanities
Delta College is strongly rooted in offering technical training and job skills that provide a path to individual prosperity and security. However, we can’t ignore the power of engaging diverse ideas and thinking through deep immersion in the arts and humanities. By helping students to think and imagine, they will build the skills needed to examine ideas and values.
Currently, 32 percent of Delta’s students attend with the intention of gaining a degree and transferring on to a four-year college or university in pursuit of their bachelor degrees. Three out of four employers nationally say they want new hires with “precisely the sorts of skills that the humanities teach: critical thinking, complex problem-solving, as well as written and oral communication.”
At Delta, the Humanities Division consists of a wide range of disciplines that allow students to engage in holistic learning. They include:
Art & Design * Choral * Communication/Theater
Electronic Media Broadcasting * Global Peace Studies
Languages * Music * Philosophy
Delta College also focuses on many community and learning aspects which occur outside of the classroom environment. Some of those projects include:
* Delta College Flute Choir
* Quality Public Broadcasting
We would love to have a conversation with you regarding what may be best, if you would like to contribute to art, music and the humanities at Delta College. To initiate that discussion, please contact Julie Dorcey in the Delta College Foundation at 989-686-9079 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
