The English and Humanities department offers courses in composition, foreign language, fine art, speech, philosophy, and literature for the entire college.

Colleges, universities, and large corporations have been increasingly emphasizing the significance of a liberal arts and sciences education in providing a solid foundation upon which careers are built. The liberal arts and sciences: humanities program prepares students for life by stressing the importance of reading, writing, and thinking while developing in them an appreciation of the arts and of the wisdom of great minds.

The department is housed in the Hunter Student Development Center, with mathematics, computer, and study skills labs as well as classrooms equipped with the most recent technological teaching aids.
