History, foreign language, philosophy, religion, literature…these are all disciplines that make up the humanities. Why are the humanities important? They help us explore human history and expose us to new ideas and beliefs. They encourage us to think “outside of the box”. Graduate of humanities programs can be found in careers in all areas of business, government, education, public and private organizations in the US and abroad.
