When you take Humanities at Dallas College, you will be thrilled and inspired to understand yourself, your community, and your world more deeply. We teach courses that challenge students to think about how, what, and why humans create. Our interdisciplinary approach to teaching humanities gives students a more well-rounded understanding of the world and the historical and cultural contexts inspiring the creative process.

Humanities courses are listed under the four-letter rubric (course prefix) HUMA.


Our students learn many marketable skills including teamwork, communication, critical thinking, effective​ writing, and creative problem solving. Our courses are transferrable and satisfy CORE requirements. Fine Arts Appreciation and Humanities II courses introduce students to a variety of visual and performing art forms and techniques plus a variety of cultures. Our American Minority Studies and World Cultures classes explore thematically driven topics while our Mexican American Studies courses can lead to a Field of Study degree.
