The Department of Arts and Philosophy at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus offers an array of credit courses in art history, critical thinking/ethics, dance, humanities, music, philosophy, photography, studio art, and theater, all aimed at preparing students to complete quality degree programs. Our distinguished faculty, many of whom hold the highest academic degrees in their respective disciplines, employ teaching strategies that develop conceptual and technical capabilities, empowering students to function as informed citizens in a rapidly changing world. Wolfson Campus is located in downtown Miami with its sophisticated multicultural climate defined by such attractions as the new Museum Park which includes the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science; the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts; the MDC Freedom Tower and Museum and Galleries of Art and Design; Wynwood Arts District; the Design District; Little Havana; fashionable Biscayne Boulevard and Brickell Avenue; and popular Bayside. The department provides students with unparalleled experiences in connecting classroom activities with topical discourses in cultural studies and the arts. The new Museum Studies two-semester course exposes students to the museum world through hands-on curatorial work, research, travel, and interaction with professionals in the field (For More Information on the Museum Studies Program Read Here). Works of emerging and celebrated artists, along with those of students and faculty, are regularly exhibited in the Wolfson Centre Gallery to provide opportunities for intellectual enrichment. The Jazz at Wolfson Presents Visiting Artists Series (J-VAS!) and opera/musical theatre as well as regular faculty and student concerts add to the musical experience. Student-written plays, Improv, and dance performances are regular offerings during the academic year, as well as the Wolfson Focus on the Humanities Series, a sequenceof invited lectures by artists, scholars, and experts in their field.
