The Humanities and Fine & Performing Arts will prepare you for critical engagement and compassionate leadership.

Courses in English composition, communication, and foreign languages will help you gain precision in oral and written communications; courses in literature and philosophy will broaden critical thinking and empathic skills; and courses in art, music, and theatre will expand your creativity and compassion. All of these skills and abilities are sought by employers looking for strong communicators, creative leaders, innovative thinkers, and proactive problem solvers. 

Importantly, majoring in one of the fields of Humanities and Fine & Performing Arts doesn’t just prepare you for a successful career. As Judith Shapiro, a former president of Bard College, once noted about the reason to major in the liberal arts, "You want the inside of your head to be an interesting place to spend the rest of your life." The Humanities and Fine & Performing Arts offer opportunities to explore what it means to be human and to live an interesting, passionate, and purpose-driven life.
