What does it take?
Pathways in Humanities
Students that pursue humanities have a tremendous opportunity to deepen as an individual and as a contributor to society. At a time when technology offers dazzling new possibilities and cultures collide in ways both exciting and dangerous, humanities provides crucial insight into what matters in life, into the character of civilization, and into the capacity — and the limits — of people’s ability to understand societies different from their own.
