Call for Course Proposals

The Department of Humanities seeks to offer courses which investigate the artistic, cultural and social contexts which inform contemporary society. We welcome course proposals for classes that pose pressing human questions and concerns and seek constructive answers, by bringing to bear both wisdom from the past and the best examples of rigorous reflection from today’s world. We are especially interested in offering our students an integrated, interdisciplinary, global curriculum, that reflects our departmental mission and complements our existing course offerings.

To suggest potential courses, please feel free to contact us.
