Humanities Scholars Seminar

There’s no end to the spiritual and intellectual evolution that can take place by pursuing the humanities.

―Ken Burns, Documentary Filmmaker

Our journey continues throughout your first year with HUM 2800: Humanities Scholars Seminar. This year-long, 6-credit course will immerse you in topics at the heart of humanities today, while escorting you along a path of self-exploration and campus discovery. The first semester will connect you with faculty and campus mentors, engage you in foundational readings, and invite you to consider approaches to contemporary challenges with humanities in mind. You will conclude the semester exploring academic majors, identifying a faculty mentor, and selecting a community challenge as your focus for the second semester.

The second semester will take you beyond readings into communities, as you apply your learning from fall to doing in spring. You will dive into a community-engaged service project that will offer the opportunity connect your passions with your academics, concluding the semester with a personal map of your discovery and its intersections with the humanities.
