Diverse Cultures Across Time and Space

About Global Humanities

In the Department of Global Humanities, undergraduate and graduate students read and study texts from the East to the West, from Ancient Greece to Modern Germany, from Taoism to Christianity, from the Italian fresco to Chinese film.

Global Humanities courses appeal to students who are curious about many diverse areas such as classical and medieval studies, modern thought and culture, Renaissance humanism, and eastern and western religions. Crossing disciplinary boundaries, students will learn to pose questions and address concerns central to understanding the human condition.

Global Humanities is also home to the Institute for the Humanities and Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Centre for Hellenic Studies, both of which have a mandate for public programming as well as research.
