Humanities is the study of artistic, religious, and philosophic expressions of cultures around the globe. You’ll practice essential critical reasoning, writing, and research skills with the direction of expert faculty. Develop strong analytical skills that are invaluable to employers by taking courses in philosophy, ethics, logic, religion, and general humanities, and apply them in careers as diverse as business, education, government, law, and medicine.
