Course Descriptions

Dr. Salmons

Alice Lloyd College’s Humanities Division houses the academic disciplines of English, Art, Drama, Speech, and Music and offers additional coursework in Philosophy, Liberal Arts, Religion, and Spanish.

By serving as the foundation for ALC’s liberal arts education, the humanities promote the theoretical investigation of the human condition by fostering critical thinking, personal expression, and academic inquiry in its students through the acts of writing, reading, performance, and research. Because of their philosophical orientation, humanities courses most often analyze aesthetic traditions and cultural values within a socio-historical context by a faculty dedicated to providing a student-centered education in the classroom.

Besides regular coursework, the Humanities Division also provides many extracurricular opportunities on ALC’s campus. Students may compete in the Billie and Curtis Owens Writing Contest and the James V. Mongiardo Speech Competition, sing as members of The Voices of Appalachia choir, act in campus-sponsored plays, or learn the craft of spinning clay for pottery. Such opportunities allow students to explore a variety of disciplines in the humanities, which add to their understanding of themselves, their culture, and their place in the world.
