The School of Humanities explores the human experience as expressed by the individual and by local and international communities. Through curricular and co-curricular activities, the faculty of the School engages students with the enduring questions of values and the struggle for fulfillment, self-expression, communication, and meaning as reflected in the languages, literature, cultures, and philosophies.
The School of Humanities promotes many ways to know and understand human thought, language, and culture. Because an advanced global civilization must give full value to the great branches of scholarly and cultural activity represented in the humanities, students and faculty engage in the study of specific cultures, languages, ideas, times, and places. Faculty within the School employ innovative pedagogies, technology, research, and scholarship to address the cultural and intellectual questions about what it means to be human.
