Humanities Department

Overview

Welcome to the Humanities Department!

If you enjoy communicating in a thoughtful and creative manner, then you will be interested in humanities courses and programs. A humanities education is the search for life’s meaning through thoughtful expression and exploration. It provides you with an education in the search for answers to questions about personal identity. You will be enriched by taking diverse courses which explore the knowledge of history, the beauty of art, the social aspects of anthropology, the inspiration of design, the wonder of language and much more!
