Arts, Humanities, & International Programs

The new Central Campus will bring together arts, humanities & international programs that have been distributed across campus to create an "academic village." This academic village will help create opportunities for interdisciplinary learning among academic departments.

Central Campus will be home for the arts and interdisciplinary research centers, such as:

  • Language, literature and culture departments
  • Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies
  • Center for Documentary Studies
  • Program in Film and Video
  • Program in Dance
  • Department of Theater Studies
  • Center for International Studies and related area studies centers and support offices
  • John Hope Franklin Center for Interdisciplinary and International Studies.

Features of the campus are expected to include shared facilities for digital media production, student performance and exhibitions. It also includes a film theater and teaching and learning space designed primarily to meet the needs of Central Campus departments and programs. The campus will also be supported by a library resource center focusing on visual studies and including access points to the full range of library services and information resources. The Nasher Museum of Art will help to define the campus.
