Humanities: Getting Started

What is the Humanities program?

Homer, Gizeh, cuneiform, theatrical masks

Students who complete the Humanities Program will be able to:

  • Understand how the artistic and intellectual achievements of people living in other eras help them to imagine their lives and understand their culture’s ideas, aesthetics, and values;
  • Understand how the artistic and intellectual achievements of people in other parts of the world reflect their ideas, aesthetics, and values;
  • Articulate ways in which the arts today reflect the ideas, aesthetics, and values of their own culture; and
  • Compare and contrast the ideas, aesthetics, and values of several cultures.
