The Humanities

The Humanities

Classical disciplines for the modern minds, the Humanities form the core of a liberal arts education.

They are the fields through which we seek to understand, enhance, and document the human experience. The more deeply we dive into humanistic knowledge, the more we strengthen our capacity for self-expression, creativity, reasoning, critical thinking, and analysis - skills that make us better learners, better collaborators, and better people.
