Home to over thirty major and minor degree programs, we promote the humanities as a means of connecting to the world and understanding our global culture. We acknowledge and embrace tradition as we look forward to cutting-edge technologies and innovative opportunities. Expert faculty facilitate creative learning environments and ask students to consider humanistic questions, solve problems, and take risks as they develop tangible, transferable skills.
