The humanities are alive. We see the great pyramids in contemporary design; we hear Bach in hip-hop and pop music; and we feel ancient religious themes and philosophies in our impassioned contemporary dialogues.
Experience Humanities invites students to take note of the continual evolution of ideas and cross-cultural influences, to better understand their cultural heritage
and to think critically about what their legacy will be for future generations. Together with Connect™ Humanities, students not only experience their cultural heritage, but develop crucial critical thinking, reading, and writing skills, preparing them to succeed in their humanities course and beyond.
