Department of Humanities and Cultural Studies
The Department of Humanities and Cultural Studies is a place for adventurous scholars and students who want to understand the complex interconnections between the arts, social structures, and history. Interdisciplinary and global in scope, our courses provide students with opportunities for detailed cultural analysis in a broad historical and philosophical context. We welcome students and scholars who are dedicated, open-minded, and willing to challenge conventional intellectual boundaries.
In the Humanities and Cultural Studies Department, we offer two undergraduate majors (Humanities or American Studies) and two masters degrees. To find out more about the department’s course offerings and degree programs visit the Undergraduate and Graduate sections of our Web site.
