The School of Arts and Humanities

The School of Arts and Humanities at St. Catherine University is a
community of disciplines including Art and Art History; History and
International Studies; Literature, Language, and Writing;
Philosophy; and Theology. Together through our interdisciplinary
cohort we guide students in their pursuit of making and living a
meaningful life. Through our programs, students wield the
exploratory, analytic, creative, and expressive power of the Arts
and Humanities. Our mission is to educate women, LGBT+, and
non-binary people to lead and influence, equipped with the unique
contributions of humanistic study. This entails training in our
disciplines and cross-disciplinary methods, developing civic
engagement, and exercising skills needed to be successful in
careers that demand critical and creative thinking. Committing to
the work of social justice, as lived by the Sisters of St. Joseph
of Carondelet, we engage in the persistent endeavor to learn about
and dismantle the ways in which racism, colorism, ableism, sexism,
gender violence, classism, colonialism, environmental degradation,
and other forms of oppression have conditioned the world as well as
our areas of practice, research, and pedagogy. Hovering at the
intersection of theory and praxis, we consider knowledge as
meaning-making, as an act rather than merely a representation. Our
work is about crafting relevant curricula that reflects and values
our students' whole selves—demographic, academic, vocational,
physical and spiritual. The Arts and Humanities Division at St.
Kate's boldly imagines—and works to produce—a more just, democratic
and sustainable future!
