As researchers and scholars, our faculty is second to none. We are proudest, though, of our students who are learning to probe the big questions and develop the analytical and interpretive skills to address them.
Engagement Spanning Millennia
Engaging students in a millennia-spanning conversation
“Since the ancient Greek Academy, humanistic inquiry, that is, the exploration and questioning of all ways of human knowing ⏤ from philosophy, literature, and language, to the arts, religious expression, and the writing of history ⏤ have been at the very center of education. What has made this inquiry humanistic, and what makes the humanities the humanities to this day, is the realization that all human knowledge is just that: human.”
