Arts & Humanities

Explore Community and World

Kirkwood's Arts & Humanities department provides a place for exploring community and world cultures through art, music, philosophy, religion, speech, theatre, and world languages.

Arts & Humanities programs encourage critical and creative thinking for lifelong learning, and contribute to the college mission and to the community through exhibitions, concerts, theatre performances, and Study Abroad.

Transfer Interest Areas We Offer:

The faculty and staff of the Arts & Humanities department at Kirkwood Community College welcome you to the 2020-2021 season of Visual and Performing Arts events. We have an exciting slate of music and theatre events that you won't want to miss.

Due to COVID-19, all fall 2020 events will be streamed online. More information coming soon! You can also follow us on Facebook.
