HUM 250W-01: The World's Wisdom
The Humanities at MSU
The Humanities Program at Minnesota State University, Mankato offers an interdisciplinary approach to examine common issues, ideas, and themes that run throughout different cultures and throughout human history. The program uncovers the creative side of the human spirit and crosses the boundaries of the shared human experience--in the places where dreams meet reality, art meets life, and technology meets nature.
By studying literature, arts, and philosophical and religious traditions from ancient to contemporary times, students will recognize the roles of human expression in shaping how individuals and cultures understand their connections to each other and to the world.
The major and minor offered by the Humanities Program help students to become independent thinkers, connection makers, and problem solvers. Humanities students will be able to communicate and work effectively across cultural and geographic boundaries, expand their critical thinking skills, and sharpen their understanding of diverse human perspectives and new global relationships.
At the undergraduate level we offer a bachelor's degree and a minor in humanities.
At the graduate level we offer a graduate certificate in humanities.
