OUR HUMANITIES PROGRAM is designed to help you ask good questions, to read deeply and well, and to think critically and appreciatively. You will learn from the perspectives of others as you explore the history of human ideas, successes and tragedies. You’ll be challenged to think critically and present an argument, to express your thoughts and appreciate the thoughts of others. This gives birth to a creative and open-minded approach that uses history and culture to engage the present and build for the future.
We believe that the integration of rigorous interdisciplinary study, community living and study abroad create a unique educational experience that no other university can match. Students whose quest is spiritual and intellectual formation will learn to think through and articulate their ideas and values with a global, historical and philosophical perspective. This is the ideal preparation for diverse career prospects; rather than study a narrow subject field and end up limited in their career choices, our Humanities students can tackle many different careers that deal with people and ideas, from teaching to international development work.
Humanities majors are available in the following:
