Humanities and Social Sciences Division Chair

On behalf of the Humanities and Social Sciences Division, I wish to extend my sincere welcome to Niagara County Community College. The Division houses courses that examine the products of human intellect. In a complex world it is essential for educated individuals to understand the human footprint on our planet as mediated by the thought and actions of individuals, societies and cultures.

Typically, each semester, the Division offers over 200 course sections across 10 disciplines. The award-winning faculty in this division takes teaching seriously as they engage students in coursework that promotes excellence in student writing, reading, thinking and analysis of their intellectual legacy. The information, concepts and attitudes conveyed in these courses are easily applied to many career goals. These disciplines not only form the bedrock of numerous transfer and certificate programs, but they also meet the requirements of SUNY General Education goals.

Our faculty provides excellent teaching because of the dedication and interest that we have in each and every one of our students. If our students look at and pursue their education as an investment, an investment into their future, the faculty in the Humanities and Social Sciences Division will provide them with that investment. Your success is important to us and we look forward to sharing your journey towards achieving your goals.
