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. The College of Humanities teaches students to read, write and think. Our graduates are prepared for a 21st-century workforce that advances those who have the power not just to achieve and innovate but to communicate their ideas to an audience beyond their applied field.
Join us for our Robert and Maureen Gohstand Reading Room Lecture series featuring Dr. Maryanne Wolf, author of Reader, Come Home: The Reading Brain in a Digital World. Read more
