Humanities is the study of a broad range of ideas and subjects drawn from philosophy, art, literature, history, religion, science, and social and political thought. Through a comparative and interdisciplinary approach to classical, medieval, renaissance, and modern culture, study of the humanities raises critical questions about achievements and controversies associated with civilization itself. Students are encouraged to examine knowledge and ideas central to the humanities and to integrate these concerns with degree programs in original and critical ways.

The Asia-Canada Program and the graduate Liberal Studies Program are affiliated with the Department of Humanities. Refer directly to their respective sections for information (see "Asia-Canada Program". and also see "Liberal Studies Program".).

Major Program
