"We Examine the Human Experience"

The Humanities Department of Catawba Valley Community College offers a number of courses to prepare the student for entrance into a four-year college or university. As part of the College Transfer Program, courses within the Humanities Department parallel the freshman and sophomore years of study at a four-year institution. In the first two years of college, students pursue a program of general education. The department offers courses in the areas of communication, English, foreign language, and religion to fulfill required humanities hours. Connect with each department to see which courses are currently offered.

“If you consider what are called the virtues in mankind, you will find their growth is assisted by education and cultivation.”  -Xenophon
