Broadly defined, this program is a significant expansion of the traditional Humanities curriculum. In addition to canonical texts, the curriculum is focused on a broad range of perspectives and theories. It thus offers the inquisitive undergraduate an opportunity critically to examine her/his culture and fully to appreciate human diversity. This is accomplished through a thorough examination of both contemporary and traditional artifacts. The program also offers exposure to traditionally suppressed voices, such as those of women and non-Western peoples.
Below are overviews of the main courses within this curriculum, as well as links related to the subject matter of both the individual courses and the Program as a whole. Further information regarding the Humanities major, the Department of Philosophy, and the College of Arts and Sciences can be found at the CAS Home Page.
