Step outside the typical university department and into Global Humanities. We are SFU’s home for art history, Classics, Hellenic (Greek) studies, and religious studies, stretching from antiquity to today. And our faculty includes experts in a range of other fields, too: Asian studies, history, medieval and Renaissance studies, modern literature, philosophy, and political science. Why? Because the study of the human condition––the core of what we do––knows no boundaries. A study in Global Humanities will prepare you to join a global community as both a thoughtful, engaged citizen and as a successful professional. We teach you to read critically, think creatively, write convincingly, work collaboratively, and speak confidently.
