From writing to art, ethics to communication, the CAP department at Padrón Campus manages all of the General Education courses in Communication, Composition, Literature, Creative Writing, Art, Religion, Humanities and Philosophy.
Our faculty—regardless of discipline—find ways to engage your curiosity about the world and develop your critical thinking. With each course you will become more and more engaged in experiencing, questioning and changing the world around you. Our faculty and staff love the richness of our student body and welcome working with students from diverse parts of the world and from different neighborhoods in Miami.
