Humanities Overview

The School of Humanities holds a distinctive place at Rice University as a school with a genuinely global expertise and engagement that reaches from ancient times to the future.

We have top-ranked programs in disciplines such as English, history, philosophy, and art. And yet, our school also lives and thrives in spaces beyond the disciplines in areas of research and study such as Medical Humanities; African and African American Studies; Politics, Law and Social Thought; Jewish Studies; and Environmental Studies.
