About Our Program

Within this department, we are humanists, philosophers, and historians, but we share one common vision: to nurture and challenge our students to become informed ethical citizens and professionals. We are passionate about exploring the greatness and complexity of the past in order to help our students lead rich, meaningful and creative lives now and into the future.


Explore the magnificent story of human creativity in a dynamic, multidisciplinary approach. See how art, literature, religion and music echo the values of the past and provide us clues to our future.


Storytelling is as old as humanity. Read, think and explore texts—ancient and modern—that have stood the test of time.


Philosophy is “the love of wisdom.” Explore and discuss current and enduring questions.
