The Humanities Initiative

The Humanities Initiative was started in Fall 2017 by a group of faculty--with support from the CAS Dean--interested in promoting the study of the humanities—the study of culture, history, language, literature, philosophy, religion—at The University of Scranton. In promoting the humanities, we seek to improve the quality of the co-curricular education we offer at the University for majors as well as the larger student body and to increase the number of students studying the humanities at The University of Scranton. We plan to do this by enriching the culture of the humanities at the University, promoting interdisciplinary inquiry and research among faculty and students, and fostering civic engagement and collaboration with the larger community.
