Curious about what it means to be human? Then this one might be for you. You will focus on exploring the human condition through the ideas, artistic movements, religions, ideologies, and intellectual structures that humans use, and have used, to understand and give meaning to their world.

At the heart of this exploration is the commitment to delve into multiple perspectives from the humanities to understand ideas across multiple eras, regions, and cultures. You will gain a strong foundation in critical thinking, reading and interpretive skills, comparative study, and effective writing.

When you leave campus, you will be prepared for careers in the humanities, publishing, ministry, writing, public relations, public administration, non-profit work, journalism, politics, government, and diplomatic service. You will also be ready for graduate study in law, journalism, English, history, religious studies, international relations, seminary, government and diplomacy, cultural studies, and humanities.
