The School of Humanities houses five centers in all.
For undergraduates, our centers offer two interdisciplinary majors: Asian Studies, and the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality.
For graduate students, our centers offer two graduate certificates, in Critical and Cultural Theory and the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality.
Our Center for Languages and Intercultural Communication and the Humanities Research Center serve both undergraduates and graduate students.
In some cases, you will find that faculty members are based in a center rather than in a department.
The links to our six centers below will guide you to information about their offerings for faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and the public.
