An Invitation to Study the Humanities

If you are an incoming first-year student and you love to read, listen to, and look at things perceptively, please consider applying to Humanities 1 & 2. Humanities 1 & 2 courses are designed for students who love to think deeply and to discuss important ideas that have puzzled or inspired people for millennia.  In Humanities 1 & 2, students study books, plays, poems, paintings, musical compositions, and films that have deeply influenced our culture and have intrigued, inspired, and sometimes antagonized generations of readers, viewers, and listeners.

Further information on the humanities sequence and how to apply is available HERE.
