Honors Humanities challenges students to consider some of the most fundamental and important questions facing humanity today. What does citizenship mean in a globalized world? What are the consequences of the digital and information revolutions for human experiences? How will understandings of diverse cultures shape the world of the twenty-first century? What is the purpose of art, and the meaning of the liberal arts, today? How do I fit into the world around me, and how can the greatest thinkers, artists, and events of the past help us to create the most democratic and just future?
