Also housed in the School of Arts & Sciences is the Institute for Language Education, which provides a rich opportunity for international and U.S. students to interact. The Institute manages our Intensive English Program to prepare students for academic programs at SNHU, a master’s program in teaching English as a foreign language and a program leading to certification in ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) for public school teachers.
You'll find art all over our campus, but there's only one place to see some of the best work of artists from New England and beyond in one spot: The McIninch Art Gallery. Since its grand opening in 2002, the McIninch Gallery has enriched, challenged and enlivened the community through ever-changing exhibits, including the much-anticipated SNHU community contest exhibition. Our permanent collection is outstanding, too. Next time you're on campus, come see what's new. Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
Writers will find exceptional opportunities on campus. Our student newspaper, The Observer, attracts many School of Arts & Sciences students, especially communications majors, to be reporters, editors, designers and photographers.
The New Hampshire Writers’ Project, based on our campus, benefits the entire university community (not to mention writers from all over northern New England). A resource for writers, publishers, booksellers, literary critics, educators and readers, it is the only statewide literary organization for writers in all genres and at all levels. Several faculty and staff are members, and students are welcome to join.
More interested in psychological development? The School of Arts & Sciences is home to the Child Development Lab, where students strive to understand infant cognition: What do babies know, and when do they know it? What do they remember? Can babies add and subtract?
We all are citizens of the world. Our students can put that conviction into action. Southern New Hampshire University’s Model United Nations is based in the School of Arts, but our students have the opportunity to travel to New York to take part in the worldwide Model United Nations program.
