Divisional Structure

In 2001, St. Francis College organized all academic departments into a divisional structure. St. Francis College is organized into four academic divisions: Humanities; Management Science; Sciences, Mathematics, Health Promotions and Health Sciences;, and Social Sciences.

Humanities

Studies within the humanities provide the instruments for an understanding of human knowledge and the means by which this knowledge can be questioned. This intellectual self-determina­tion, the basis upon which a liberal arts education is built, combines an emphasis on the development of the whole person with an understanding of civilization and its foundations. By encom­passing so much of human knowledge and experience, courses within the humanities lead students toward intellectual, emo­tional, and spiritual development within an atmosphere of serious intellectual pursuit, learning, and scholarship.

The division of Humanities has established a series of goals and objectives: to promote intellectual growth and curiosity; to examine modes of communication, means of expression, and ways of thinking; to cultivate critical awareness; to provide a solid grounding in each discipline within the humanities; and to de­velop an appreciation of human cultures and societies.

An understanding of society and of their own places within it is expected to enhance not only their future careers, but also their ability to participate in and contribute to the society of which they are a part.
