Our Mission

The School of Humanities prepares students for every future by providing them with the experience they need to succeed in their careers and their lives.

  • Transferable skills – Teaching students to read carefully, think critically, and communicate clearly, skills that never go out of fashion – and cannot be replicated by robots! Courses enrich technological abilities with the lessons of human experience.
  • Problem solving – Nurturing students’ curiosity about the world and enhancing their abilities to learn independently. Courses make students into the intellectually flexible problem solvers that employers want.
