They also include specialized programs that are professionally oriented and lead to careers such in such fields as teaching, criminal justice, social work, and the performing arts. The College of Liberal and Fine Arts is organized into four departments:

I. English and Languages, including Foreign Languages.

II. Fine Arts and Communications, including Music, Art, Theatre, and Communications.

III. Social Sciences, including History, Government, and Philosophy.

IV. Social Work, Sociology, and Criminal Justice.
