The Department of Humanities offers a coordinated series of seminars and courses designed to inquire into the human condition from an interdisciplinary perspective. Drawing on wisdom ancient and new, the curriculum encourages critical thinking about what is needed for human flourishing. Humanities faculty are specialists in complementary disciplines, including theology, philosophy, literature, political science, history, economics, and architectural history. Humanities courses fulfill certain requirements for the Core Curriculum of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
