Kettering College Classes Meeting Online, Faculty & Staff Working Remotely, Due to Coronavirus

Kettering College has moved all face-to-face classes and business operations online as we take precautions to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe during the current novel coronavirus pandemic.

All student activities & events, including those on campus are canceled until further notice.

Student Services (Admissions, Financial Aid, and Records), and Academic Support (tutoring, Writing Center, career services, and advising) have also moved online. It is still their priority to serve students, answer questions, and enroll students for the upcoming semesters.

Humanities Department

Welcome to the Humanities and Social Sciences Department

It is our goal to do more than just train you to do a job.  We want to expose you to the great ideas of human history, teach you to think critically, and help develop your wisdom.  After all, these are the very qualities employers consistently say matter most to them.

Even though you won’t get a degree in the humanities or the social sciences here at Kettering College, you will find that the courses in our department enrich you as a human being.  Many courses will teach you concepts you need to know.  All of our courses will help you become the person you are designed to be.

The heart of Kettering College is the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences.  Here the “old” subjects of literature, history, ethics, religion, psychology, sociology, and philosophy provide a foundation and meaning to the “new” discoveries of the world.

As the chair of the department, I am eager to get to know you and talk with you about the kind of education and life you want for yourself.   Come see me!

The sign on my door says, “Eternal Medicine”.  That’s what we do.


David VanDenburgh

Chair of Humanities Department
