Letters from the Dean 2020 Claudia (added 4/10/20)

Welcome to the Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts at Coastal Carolina University. Students enter the Edwards College as curious, talented individuals full of promise. They leave the College as knowledgeable, experienced young professionals fully prepared to take on challenges, participate in collaborative problem solving, and produce meaningful work in a global context.

The Edwards College values interaction and exploration. Courses feature custom classroom experiences where students consider, question, and debate concepts ranging from the classical to the contemporary. Experiential centers take that learning out of the classroom into authentic professional environments. These centers provide students direct access to and active participation in local issues that have global impact. Through this work, you’ll find opportunities to perform, exhibit, research, present, and publish.

Those in the Edwards College believe in ideals such as truth, beauty, and the immortality of art; we pursue those ideals on a daily basis. But we also believe in preparing students to thrive in a 21st-century workplace that features ever-advancing technology and forms of communication. The ability to think critically in order to succeed in such an environment offers lifelong benefits, and it’s rooted in the Edwards College.
