Gain a comprehensive introduction to the humanities as an integrated field of study that brings ideas in religion, history, literature, popular culture, fine arts and philosophy into dynamic and rich conversation.
The Humanities program emphasizes the different ways in which human cultures and their multiple forms of expression have developed historically and continue to develop today. Humanities courses devote particular attention to the cultural practices of peoples in various times and places and the ways they have expressed cultural values and ideas of a philosophical, religious, moral, political and aesthetic nature. They foster a critical approach to reading and research that, in helping students learn to identify and question preconceived assumptions and values, allows them to engage and appreciate the interrelationship between diverse value systems and thereby to develop an analysis of the human and of human community. Courses stress careful scrutiny of texts and cultural artifacts, critical thinking, reading, writing, seminar discussion and close contact between teacher and student.
