Summary

The humanities study the creative legacy of human culture: the connective thread that unites all of humanity—past, present and future.

Examining what it means to be human—whether through an ancient Greek sculpture, a Renaissance invention or a contemporary American political debate—is at the heart of the humanities.

Our courses are designed to help you develop skills in critical thinking, creativity and self-expression. Plus, our dedicated, student-centered faculty have fresh ideas and teach with interactive methods.

Many disciplines are included in the study of human beings and the cultural products they create, including:

  • Anthropology
  • Philosophy
  • History
  • Language
  • Literature
  • Geography
  • Fine arts
  • Political science
