Arts, Languages, and Philosophy is a vibrant and diverse department, dedicated to enhancing the experience and education of Missouri S&T's students through immersion in philosophy, languages, media studies, art, film, music, and theatre courses.

‌‌

Philosophy

Students can earn a B.S. in philosophy. We also offer three minors. The study of philosophy emphasizes the understanding of ideas, the capacity to identify assumptions, and the ability to gain insights into problems and puzzles.

Multidisciplinary Studies

In ALP, students may work with an advisor to write their own degree programs, combining S&T's general BA requirements with two or three focus areas to design an individualized academic curriculum reflecting their own special interests and needs.

Modern Languages

We offer courses in Spanish, German, Russian, and French, where students can also earn a minor in any of these areas. We are a dedicated faculty students, fostering their ability to converse on an elementary level just after two semesters of study.

Speech & Media Studies

Communication underlies every human interaction, whether among friends, in the workplace, or as the citizens and leaders of our communities. Understanding how communication works is essential to the process of becoming an effective member of our work and communities.

Art & Film studies at Missouri S&T

Art & Film

There are various avenues to experience and study art throughout college, but the most effective and thorough way is by taking an art course from our program. We offer courses in art appreciation, art history, study of film, as well as courses in design, painting, and photography.

Music

You are invited to become a member of some of Missouri S&T's most exciting, fun, and challenging organizations. Whether you are incoming freshman, a member from last year or from years past, there is a place for you in one or more of the bands, orchestras, and choirs.

Theatre

We offer courses in media production and performance, theatre apprecation, and special projects. Students, community, and faculty are involved in these productions - a good time is always had.
