CHA Department

The Communications, Humanities and Arts Department (CHA) offers credit and noncredit instruction leading to transfer degrees and career program certification in disciplines including visual arts and computer graphics; music and theater; digital media and television production; foreign and American Sign languages; and speech, philosophy and the humanities.

Instruction emphasizes hands-on learning, whether in the pottery studio, the television studio, the music studio or the public speaking classroom. Students develop their talents through the guidance of experienced instructors who are professionals in their areas of specialization.

The CHA department also offers enrichment opportunities to the community with a host of extra- and co-curricular arts events that take place in the Jack B. Kussmaul Theater and the Mary Condon Hodgson Gallery, both located in FCC’s Fine Arts and Student Center.
