Humanities

About the Program

Humanities is the study of literature, art, history and philosophy to search for life's meaning. Courses investigate how artists and thinkers have grappled with the big questions such as what it means to be human, what it means to be happy, and how to live a good life.

The calling of the humanities is to make us truly human in the best sense of the word.

- J. Irwin Miller

In this program, you'll learn to think and write critically, as well as solve complex problems.
