The Humanities are those disciplines that study the
expressions of human beings as a means of exploring and revealing what it means to be human. They include
literature, philosophy, history, art, music, theater, opera,dance, cinema, and architecture. Rather than examining physical attributes, the Humanities probe such intangibles
as purpose, meaning, and judgment, and, as a consequence, they challenge people to self reflect, think abstractly, and create. In short, the Humanities attempt to
understand the human condition, its mysteries, and its paradoxes.

The Humanities course offering, HUM1020, is
a General Education requirement that helps students position themselves and their ideas in cultural and human contexts. A humanities lab provides audio visual support for the course.
