College of Arts and Humanities
U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges - Most Innovative 2024

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities and Cultural Studies enables students to receive solid foundations in the interdisciplinary study of cultures and meanings. Students study how human cultures have produced meaning in the past and continue to do so, reflect critically on these productions, and learn relevant perspectives and meaningful interpretations that contribute to responsible engagement with the many cultural expressions we encounter today. Students conduct pertinent research in the Humanities--including the study of languages, literature, history, jurisprudence, philosophy, comparative religion, ethics, and the arts while developing their own skills of critical evaluation and constructive engagement. Upon graduation, students are open to entering the job market, pursuing advanced education, or studying/teaching abroad with solid skill sets in an increasingly culturally diverse and politically complex world.
