Humanities is an interdisciplinary program, which promotes cross-cultural study of texts (written, oral and visual), traditions, and discourses.
Humanities undergraduate and graduate students develop methods of bringing the various courses, such as Literature, Language, International Relations, Education into an integrative view of the world’s cultural diversity.
Our humanistic inquiry focuses on social conduct, values and artistic insights across human communities. This goal is accomplished through a two-pronged approach: a core curriculum that introduces humanistic methods and concepts, modes of critical analysis, and sound writing practices; a series of required courses and electives.
