Arts and Letters

Calderwood School of Arts and Letters ​​​​​​​​​

The founders of Grove City College believed that those classically educated in the liberal arts were uniquely equipped to preserve and advance the values of faith and freedom.

The Alva J. Calderwood School of Arts and Letters at Grove City College is comprised of the Departments of Accounting, Biblical and Religious Studies, Business, Communication Studies, Economics, Education, English, Entrepreneurship, History, Modern Languages, Music and Fine Arts, Philosophy, Physical Education and Athletics, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology.

In 2002, the Hall of Arts and Letters, which houses the school, was dedicated in Dr. Alva J. Calderwood’s honor. Calderwood graduated from Grove City College in 1896 and after pursuing graduate studies at Harvard University, returned to Grove City College to spend the remainder of his life teaching and serving as an administrator. He was a professor for 53 years and Dean of the College for 35 years.
