About Us

The RCAH at MSU is an innovative living-learning degree option designed for students who want to combine a small-college experience with the resources and opportunities available at a major university. The RCAH is home to individuals with diverse interests, skills, and talents. Our students:
  • have a passion for civic engagement, particularly in its democratic and generative potential to affect positive societal change through the arts and humanities
  • engage in literature, history, ethics, the visual and performing arts, and the study of languages and cultures
  • chart their own path with ongoing advising and career development support
  • value individual expression, exploration and achievement
  • develop close working relationships with faculty and staff with similar interests.


In the RCAH, students have the opportunity to live and learn together, engage in the arts and humanities through experiential learning, focus critical attention on the public issues we face, and build community within and beyond Snyder-Phillips Hall.
