What is RCAH?

While the answer typically is filled with endless possibilities, RCAH—the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities at Michigan State University—answers it in less than three minutes in a new video, “RCAH: Live Your Learning.” The video describes why the RCAH degree program is unique in the world of college majors, and why it’s especially vital at this time in our history. 

RCAH is a highlight of MSU’s nationally acclaimed residential learning communities, which recently were ranked by U.S. News Best Colleges as the top public-school learning communities in the country. The RCAH experience combines the best of smaller, personalized majors with all the opportunities of a Big Ten university like MSU.  

“We continue to make certain that an RCAH education is as important today as ever before,” said RCAH Dean Dylan Miner. “The video highlights the unique character of RCAH’s acclaimed residential learning community by emphasizing our creative approach to problem solving, our rigorous curriculum, meaningful personal connections, key skills development, small class sizes, and amazing out-of-class experiences.  

“We strive every day to make RCAH more accessible—and a home—to current and future students,” Miner continued. “So we’re excited about connecting with a new generation of RCAH students and embracing the buzz around RCAH as a ‘destination college.’” 

Current students, faculty, and staff are featured in the video, which is a collaboration between RCAH Communications and Kirk Mason ’14, an RCAH/MSU alum and award-winning documentary filmmaker.
