Philosophy and Humanities provides an education in the intellectual and creative underpinnings of the liberal arts curriculum. Philosophy explores the enduring questions of human life. Humanities examines the objects humans have created to respond to those questions. Students in both programs learn how to think critically, communicate clearly and persuasively, and adapt to new perspectives and cultural insights.

Programs 

1

Philosophy

Philosophy engages life’s greatest questions – on ethics, on human existence, on reality and our place within it – and explores the history of ideas.
2

Humanities

Humans create objects. Humanities is the interdisciplinary study of those objects – artworks, machines, ideas – and the ways they express the human condition.
