The Department of Humanities will develop in you an understanding and an appreciation of history and literature, philosophy and language, art and music. A diverse and accomplished faculty provides training in writing, in the fundamentals of research in the humanities, and in the basics of the fine arts.
The Department serves the entire University community by sponsoring lectures, concerts and many other special events that showcase the best of the humanities and the fine arts. Numerous vocal and instrumental ensembles in the Music Program enable you to explore your musical talents, and through a unique exchange program, you can take a course at University of the Arts for no additional tuition.
Our mission, to stimulate your imagination and joy in life, complements the University’s expertise in the health sciences.
