About Humanities

The Humanities Program is dedicated to the study of works of human thought and creativity, including works from the visual arts, literature, music, film, dance, philosophy, and religion within their cultural contexts. We seek to engage our students minds, hearts, and senses through an examination of the beauty and transformative power of arts and ideas. We encourage dialogue between the ideas, values, and aesthetic expressions of Western and non-Western cultures. We provide students with the opportunity to examine their own beliefs, values, and assumptions and to consider their own individual perceptions of all aspects of human creative endeavor. The aim of the Humanities Program is to help students achieve a broader understanding of themselves and the world around them.
