The Humanities are classes which focus on the value of human existence. It is often said that the humanities help us make a life that is worth living. Classes in the Humanities emphasize critical thinking, values clarification, a global perspective and an appreciation of diversity. Courses in the Humanities are central to a well-rounded, well-considered educational program. The Humanities seeks to deepen wisdom by viewing knowledge as a whole rather than compartmentalized. It is the goal of the humanities to create and sustain lives that are personally satisfying and supportive of healthy communities.
