Arts & Communications
Welcome from Dr. Denice Yanni, Chair of the Arts & Communications Department
As the name of our department suggests, our courses of study focus on the arts (literature, fine arts, drama, theater), personal and professional communications (writing, speech, media, news reporting, languages, fashion writing), as well as social sciences (philosophy, psychology, current events) and history (the Vietnam Era, 20th Century American, and the history of New York City.) Over the past several years we have greatly expanded our basic writing and speech offerings as well as our liberal arts electives to provide you with a broad cultural foundation, as well as the skills required to be successful in your chosen industry. We firmly believe that the abilities to write effectively, to speak well, and to communicate across cultural boundaries are crucial to a rewarding life and a successful career.
The Arts & Communications department is committed to your success. We are staffed with a dedicated faculty, comprised of seasoned classroom teachers, many of whom are also practitioners in their subject areas, including artists, writers, poets, actors, and directors among others. Additionally, our Writing Center provides writing evaluation, tutoring, cultural and artistic events, workshops, and serves as a hub for Fashion Sense, the College’s student-produced magazine.
If you have questions about our many courses and activities, please contact me at (212) 752-1530 Ext. 394. I look forward to meeting you.
