Faculty of the fine arts at CSUSB are nationally recognized and accomplished creative writers, curators, artists, composers, directors, and performers.

Collectively, Arts & Letters faculty have published over 40 books of scholarship and creative writing. In addition, dozens of faculty articles appear in publications such as International Journal of American Linguistics, The Sixteenth Century Journal, Journal of Popular Film and Television, Journal of Moral Philosophy, International and Intercultural Communications Annual, Text and Performance Quarterly and Art in America.

Our professors have won highly competitive grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and National Endowment for the Arts, the U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Defense, and National Security Agency, as well as interdisciplinary grants from the National Institute of Nursing and NASA.

Faculty present their work at major conferences — including the Conference on College Composition and Communication, the National Communication Association Conference, the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages Conference, the American Philosophy Association Conference, the American Alliance for Theatre and Education, the Western Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, and the North American Victorian Studies Association — and are frequently invited as keynote speakers and guest lecturers.

On campus, we enjoy interdisciplinary exchanges in faculty colloquia, which are offered each academic term and are open to the campus community.
