Welcome to the Division of Arts & 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 Division of Arts and Humanities, world-class scholars and undergraduates together pursue fundamental insights into the human condition as they arise in art, music, film, philosophy, literature, and languages.
