The study of humanities opens the door to understanding and appreciating environmental, social, cultural, political and economic relations. By studying philosophy, history, religion, culture, social sciences and the arts, students and instructors explore what it means to be human in an interactive, collaborative environment that promotes diversity and expression. Only by asking questions, thinking creatively, critically analyzing information, and solving problems through innovation will we develop multifaceted solutions for different situations.
