Humanities

Humanities

Program focuses on different ways in which human cultures and their multiple forms of expression have developed and continue to develop.

You'll have the opportunity to do specialized academic work in the diverse, cultural expressions of humanities that cannot be contained within the bounds of conventional disciplines.

Our professors have been published in many languages, including Hebrew, French, German, Italian, Hungarian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian.

The Graduate Program in Humanities offers a Graduate Diploma in Comparative Literature that is awarded concurrently with a Master’s or Doctoral degree for which the student is registered.
