Department of Humanities

The Humanities Department provides students with a knowledge of human culture as manifested in the liberal arts. It includes the academic majors of communication, English, history, liberal studies, and Spanish.

With this foundation in the liberal arts and in the Salesian Christian humanist tradition, our graduates are well-prepared for professional careers, engaged citizenship, and graduate studies.

DeSales Chorale

It Pays to Sing at DeSales!

Our outstanding three-choir program is at the core of the University’s musical and spiritual life. And, singing in our choirs can substantially finance your DeSales education  — up to and including full-tuition! — with scholarship opportunities for singers who do NOT wish to pursue music as a major.
