College of the Humanities
The College of the Humanities was founded in 1996 in order to provide an undergraduate education for students drawing on all the traditional Arts subjects through the Bachelor of Humanities degree program. The interdisciplinary character of the College has since been enhanced by the addition of two further degree programs, a Bachelor of Arts in Greek and Roman Studies and a Bachelor of Arts in Religion.
Bachelor of Humanities (Great Books)
The Bachelor of Humanities degree program provides an integrated, interdisciplinary liberal education, combining the disciplines of history, philosophy, literature, political theory, religion, classics, art history, and music history. In addition to the curriculum the B.Hum fosters collegiality among the 70 to 80 students admitted each year through small discussion groups and their own College precinct.
Bachelor of Arts in Greek and Roman Studies
The Bachelor of Arts in Greek and Roman Studies degree program provides an education in the cultures of Ancient Greece and Rome. Students study all aspects of ancient culture: its literature, history, religion, art, and philosophy, with particular attention paid to the acquisition of the Greek and Latin languages.
Bachelor of Arts in Religion
The Bachelor of Arts in Religion degree program provides an education in world religions. Its field of study stretches from ancient times up to the modern day, and has as its purview both Western monotheistic religions and the major religions of the non-Western world. The study of religion seeks not only to understand each religious tradition in itself, but to see each as embedded within an entire culture.
Each degree program housed within the College has its own interdisciplinary approach. Together, the three programs allow faculty and students within the College of the Humanities to benefit from each other’s study of the various Arts disciplines.
