Humanities Department

Throughout history, people have expressed themselves through art, literature, language, and drama.


Our Humanities Department celebrates these forms of expression and seeks to better understand them and the way they influence the human experience.

A depth of course content and vocational opportunities highlight the comprehensive nature of pursuing a degree in humanities. Seasoned professors with real-world experience provide guidance and mentorship as you pursue a foundation for career success.

A focused and thoughtful approach with a Christian worldview in all course content highlights the importance of integrating your faith and your calling.
