The Language and Thought Department is home to the following disciplines: Communication Studies, Foreign Languages, American Sign Language, Journalism, Humanities and Philosophy.

Our Department strives to enhance the quality of life and cultural awareness of our students and the community, building a greater sense of civility, social competency, the ability to think critically and to help students lead meaningful and productive lives. To this end we offer a wide variety of classes for both traditional and non-traditional students. Our classes provide both practical life experience as well as transfer credits to four-year institutions. We provide a flexible schedule for classes, offering weekday times as well as evening and some weekend classes, both on the Main Campus as well as at our various satellite campuses.
