Center for the Arts and Humanities

Drawing from both traditional forms of expression and the latest in digital technologies, the Center for Arts and Humanities at Santa Clara University literally has no boundaries as it fosters interdisciplinary collaboration in research, teaching, service and creative activity both on campus and in the community, locally and globally. The Center merges the Jesuit passion for scholarly excellence and service with the explosion of creativity which is Silicon Valley. Join us as we not only push the envelope but eliminate it all together, exploring the joy of meaningful expression at the interface of the arts, humanities, sciences, and entrepreneurial genius in the 21st Century.
