About the College



The Journey of a Lifetime

By uniting the humanities with the disciplines of design and building and the arts, Clemson University's College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities (CAAH) offers unique opportunities for exploration and  achievement – opportunities that are rigorous and imaginative, classical and innovative. 

Our students and faculty see their ideas expressed in many forms – as buildings and landscapes; as the written word; as music and drama; as paintings, pottery, prints and photographs. We work in the very oldest media to the very newest. We work alone, and we work together, seeking not only the visionary answers, but also the enduring questions. 

Professors and instructors are directly engaged with students in the classrooms, studios, labs, practice rooms and Creative Inquiry research projects. We value critical and synthetic thinking, creativity, diversity and the life-changing opportunity to achieve one's full potential. Our campus is fluid – encompassing the real and the virtual, off-campus and on, classical and contemporary. 

The CAAH Advising Center provides services to help you assess your skills and interests and can assist you in making an informed decision about an academic major. 

Find your passion. Find your voice.
