Communications, Humanities and Arts

Please Join Us Saturday, April 12th for FCC's Visual & Performing Arts Center Arts Showcase & Grand Re-Opening

The Communications, Humanities and Arts Department embraces credit and noncredit instruction leading to transfer degrees, career program certification or simple life-span enrichment in a diverse array of disciplines. These include the visual arts and computer graphics; music and theater; digital media and television production; foreign and American Sign languages; and speech, philosophy and the humanities. Our 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 competent professionals in their areas of specialization.

The 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 the Fine Arts and Student Center. Contact Barbara Barry, CHA, Academic Office Manager, bbarry@frederick.edu or 301 846 2512, for copies of the bi-annual calendar of these events.
