About the Program

The Humanities Program is an innovative interdisciplinary program.  Its courses offer the opportunity to roam historically and to explore across fields and cultures with issues relevant to the present. The core of the program is a set of Western humanities courses taught by a team of faculty from among the humanities disciplines, such as art history, classics, English, European languages history, literature, music, philosophy and religion departments. Each course is taught by two professors who put their fields together on a thematic basis. These courses are complemented by comparative humanities courses that explore the contributions to world and Western culture of civilizations around the globe, including Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Representing the College’s commitment to interdisciplinarity, the Humanities Program serves to increase historical consciousness, aesthetic and intellectual activity. All humanities courses count in the general education requirements and may also count towards certain majors and minors.
