 Humanities & Fine Arts Department

The world in many languages

 MISSION STATEMENT

Across the world, the composition of school and classroom populations is becoming increasingly diverse. Thoughtful educators recognize that considered collectively the diverse student populations (talented and gifted, multicultural, learning disabled, and speakers of other language) make up a majority rather than a minority of the students they teach (Teemant & Pinnegar, 2019).                       

The Department of Humanities and Fine Arts supports the mission of Malcolm X College by facilitating the development of oral, visual, written communication skills, and critical analysis, through an understanding of the Fine Arts and Humanities.       ​
