Faculty and students in the humanities and arts explore how people make sense of the world. Humanists are like code-breakers. They learn to create messages through language, art, music, history, philosophy, or religion. They also learn to interpret these messages for themselves and others. The skills associated with humanities study are highly desired by employers and important for contributing to society.
"As a transfer student, the Engaging Humanities program appealed to me. It offered exclusive courses with small class sizes and graduate mentorship. I really enjoyed the approaches of examining work through multiple lenses and being able to freely discuss topics in class."
—Wren Palmer, Third Year English Major
"Engaging Humanities was beneficial to my academic career. I was able to publish one of my assignments as an article in a research journal. Taking my particular Engaging Humanities class allowed me to kickstart my undergraduate writing career."
—Maya Sinha, First Year Student and Engaging Humanities Fellow
