The Art of Being Human

Welcome to L&S Arts and Humanities

To study the humanities is to study human society and culture and how humans make the world meaningful. Since the beginning of time, humans from around the globe have contended with and raised central questions about the human experience. In the Arts and Humanities Division, world-class scholars and undergraduates together pursue fundamental insights into the human condition as they arise in art, music, film, philosophy, literature, and languages.
