Humanities: History

  • Three courses in the humanities will help you to understand the heritage of Western civilization in all its richness and diversity. You must have one course in each of three areas: literature, philosophy or religious studies, and history.

    This is your opportunity to meet some of the world’s greatest thinkers and writers and to place your own time in historical perspective. You will have a chance to think deeply about enduring, fundamental issues—like justice or equality or love—which men and women have continually struggled to understand better.
