School of Humanities
Study with us: explore complex ideas, universal concepts, and expression
The School of Humanities is comprised of the major disciplines of English, History, Philosophy and Religion. In other words, we are the school that examines and celebrates our capacity for expression, empathy, and critical evaluation. Offering both undergraduate and graduate degrees, our programs study the past, present and future of human culture in order to learn more about ourselves and our world. Thanks to the training they receive in our classes, students who major in the humanities go on to work in a diverse and exciting field of professional and academic careers.
