Humanities Department

Mission Statement: We live in a diverse and complex world that is rapidly evolving. To understand our place in it and what it means to be human, the Humanities prepare and encourage us to listen to others, past and present, and to question and express ourselves thoughtfully. The academic disciplines that constitute the Humanities arise from our need
to create, search for life's meaning, and to understand the nature of beauty, fellowship, knowledge, reality, and imagination.
