College of Humanities
Welcome to Humanities
As education becomes ever more focused on professional degrees and vocational training, employers increasingly report that what they seek is not necessarily more specialized degrees but rather people who can think, who can synthesize, who can analyze, and who can apply a broad base of thought to a wide variety of areas.

Symposium topics include Panel 1:Feminist Interventions in Current Ethno-Religious and Hegemonic Conflicts; Panel 2: Feminist Interventions in Conflict Zones and State/Ethnic/Religious Based Violence; Panel 3: Politics of Sectarian and Ethno-Religious Conflicts.
