James H. Gilliam, Jr. College of Liberal Arts
Welcome to the James H. Gilliam, Jr. College of Liberal Arts!
The James H. Gilliam, Jr. College of Liberal Arts has a two-fold mission. Through its general education offerings, the College provides the foundation for all student learning at the University by assisting in the development of students' critical and analytical skills, foundational oral and written skills in both English and other world languages, and awareness of the global forces that have shaped, and continue to shape, the modern world. In its major programs, the College aspires to provide high-quality, student-focused teaching and research opportunities in communication and media studies, the humanities, the fine and performing arts and the social sciences. The College's programs should both instill in its majors an appreciation for liberal learning and prepare students for the professions and/or for advanced academic study.
The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Morgan State University offers instruction in the history of philosophy, pre-law philosophy courses, and religious studies.
The Department of Political Science & International Studies prepares students with the skills that are necessary for them to excel in graduate and law schools. If they choose to enter the workforce, they will have the skills that can be applied to any occupation. Our students are working in the field of government at all levels, law, not-for-profit organizations, and the private sector.
We seek to provide our majors with the latest sociological tools (knowledge and research skills) which will enable them to positively change their environments, including their local communities, the nation, and the world.
