Arts and Social Sciences Division

Violin.Life's great memories include not only significant events, such as family and personal triumphs, but also the aesthetic experiences gained from the arts and from nature. Ohlone College offers many opportunities for personal achievement in arts for students and for the community. Participation in the arts broadens perspectives, stimulates the imagination, celebrates diversity, builds bridges across cultures, and exposes us to magnificent artistic monuments.

Education for Life and Work

Arts and Social Sciences' instructional programs serve three main student constituencies: (1) transfer, (2) occupational, and (3) continuing education. We seek to assist in the development of cultural arts in the Fremont-Newark community.

Access and Excellence

The division offers general education classes in the arts and provides practical instruction in studio art as well as performing opportunities in musical groups and theatrical productions. Each Spring, the Annual Student Art Show takes place in the Louie-Meager Art Gallery and the Multimedia Festival takes place at Hyman Hall.
