Welcome to the School of Humanities
Whether you are a visitor to Rice, or a past, current or future Rice student, or a member of our faculty and staff, this site is your guide to the humanities at Rice.
Learn here about our faculty's books, exhibitions, films, and performances.
The School of Humanities at Rice University is a top liberal arts college rolled into a research university. Its small scale, combined with its research focus, brings advantages to both the undergraduates and to the graduate students in its five PhD-granting departments.
Want to catch an art exhibition, listen to a scholar of great renown give a talk, or see a play? Look here for short- and long-term events and milestones. Check our events calendar for what to do tonight. Browse "Humanitas" magazine and other links to see what has been unfolding in the School of Humanities over the months or years.
Your support will help Rice students to think on a global scale from hands-on research and professional development to international travel opportunities.
