• Welcome to the Division of Arts and Sciences at Del Mar College.

     Dr JondaHalcombWho We Are.  Our College is located in Corpus Christi, Texas, next to the Gulf of Mexico on Corpus Christi Bay in South Texas.  We are proud of the role the College – and specifically the Division of Arts and Sciences – has played and continues to play in the education and advancement of so many students from South Texas and throughout the nation.  Many alumni have become well known for their contributions to their professions and to the broader local, national, and international communities.  Our graduates agree that we are the originating source for much that is good in our nation, and we hope to add your name to this growing list.

    What We Offer.  The Division offers a full array of both traditional and innovative courses, including the Core Curriculum so necessary to transfer students.  We help students develop degree plans reflecting their intentions for attending upper-division courses at four-year institutions throughout the nation.  As a fully accredited institution, academic college-level credits earned in our Division are easily transferable to other state and national institutions.  

    What We Believe.  We believe in the usefulness and pleasures of a liberal education.  We help to educate and train our students for successful and lucrative experiences in the larger world.  We understand the need for acquiring the fundamentals of leadership and of cooperative behaviors which lead to responsible civic engagement, and we feel strongly about the successive stages of personal and professional development required for a successful future.  Yet just as important are the delights and pleasures of learning.  These are what ultimately bring happiness and give depth to our human experience.  They are what lend meaning to our lives.  In the end, the enduring questions of life are what are addressed each day by our fine faculty in our many classes.  We invite you to join our conversation.

    Our Invitation.  We invite you to start this conversation by browsing the pages of the Division’s Departments and to explore their many links to interesting and useful information.  If I may assist you in answering questions, making contacts, or obtaining information, please email, call, or write me.
