The Humanities provide students with opportunities to learn about world, gender, and cultural differences that build a foundation upon which to develop their own creative identities. This focus on multiculturalism in views, values, and experiences is woven throughout the coursework in all areas of study.

The study of humanities helps the student to understand "What does it mean to be human?" This introspection and expanded world view gives these graduates a better understanding of the world around them.
Utilizing this knowledge, graduates can apply their talents in several industries. Researchers and sociologists can query information about people from the past in order to have insight for the future. Workers in a market research firm will be able to analyze the release of a new product in different geographic regions. Public relations employees will be able to speak more effectively with their local and international constituents.
Insight into the historic, cultural, philosophical differences of people is a useful skill regardless of your profession.
