Division of Humanities, Fine & Performing Arts

The Humanities, Fine & Performing Arts program at Northwest Florida State College features a host of academic majors and performance opportunities for students interested in the arts and humanities.

Because of its association with the Mattie Kelly Arts Center, it presents unique opportunities for professional-level experiences in dance, theater, voice, music and visual arts. These experiences complement academics that provide the core for select two-year A.S. degrees, industry-specific certificates, or two-year transfer programs.

Mattie Kelly Arts Center

For more than 20 years, MKAC has been providing world-class productions to patrons in the Southeastern United States. In addition to hosting Broadway shows, the Arts Center is also home to the Northwest Florida State College Department of Humanities, Fine & Performing Arts, and hosts a myriad of student-run shows. The Arts Center boasts a variety of theaters, galleries, and even an outdoor amphitheater that makes it an ideal venue for any style of performance.
