Department of Humanities

Our mission: Stimulate your imagination and joy in life. Our diverse and accomplished faculty make it possible by training students in writing, the fundamentals of research in the humanities, and the basics of the fine arts. Our commitment to the humanities and developing well-rounded students complements the University’s expertise in the health sciences.

By sponsoring lectures, concerts, and many other special events that showcase the best of the humanities, our department serves the entire University community. Through a unique exchange program, you can even take a course at The University of the Arts for no additional tuition.
