In addition, HSS is committed to providing opportunities for students to satisfy their Core Curriculum requirements in English Composition and electives in Humanities and Fine Arts. HSS is sensitive to the needs of individual students and seeks to develop logical thinkers, articulate communicators, vivid readers, accurate writers and analytical listeners. In addition, the Division provides extra-curricular activities, which engage students' creative energies while complementing their academic exercise.
