Humanities Department

Who are we? Where did we come from? Why are we here? What is the good? What is beauty? The humanities explore the ways in which people, throughout the ages, have struggled with these and similar questions. The mission of the Chattanooga State Humanities and Fine Arts Division is to guide students in expanding their knowledge and understanding of the world around them and in developing the verbal, written, and performance skills necessary to articulate that expanded world view, thereby equipping them to function as better students in an academic community and as better citizens in the global community.

Reading Center

The newly renovated Reading Emporium

Reading skills are crucial to college success. Foundational reading skills include the ability to identify main and subordinate ideas, make inferences, separate fact from opinion, identify biases and point of view, master vocabulary, and adjust reading rates and skills to various kinds of written materials.

The Reading Center is located in IMC-215 (second floor). More Information

Writing Center

The new Don Andrews Writing and Photography Center

The Writing Center at Chattanooga State Community College offers a supportive academic environment that empowers students to become more effective and confident writers. We are committed to providing high quality tutoring for writers across all disciplines and at all skill levels, because we believe that learning to write is a life-long process. We strive to promote independent thinking, and we feel that students learn best when actively engaged in their own writing. We work to create an accessible, active, and collaborative Writing Center community, which seeks to fulfill the college's mission of "transforming the lives of individuals."

The Writing Center is located in IMC-201 (second floor). More Information
