School of Humanities
Explore “big 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 the human capacity for expression, empathy and critical evaluation. Offering both undergraduate and graduate degrees, our programs delve into what makes culture and society what it is: How did we get here? Why do we think as we do? Our school challenges students to think critically and question one’s basic assumptions, all the while exploring the best that has been thought, written and argued throughout recorded time.
The School of Humanities offers innovative and challenging undergraduate and graduate programs in our disciplines, including programs in secondary education in English and social studies/history.
The School of Humanities offers a range of research and creative opportunities for study. The philosophy program offers a Pre-Law emphasis degree ideal for students interested in Law School.
