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.
Faculty at Rice pursue research, teaching, and service. As a research university, Rice's mission is to create new knowledge. Faculty in the School of Humanities create new knowledge in the form of books, articles, artworks, and more. We disseminate that knowledge by publishing or exhibiting our work.
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.
