As we strive to create a more civil public discourse, a more adaptable and creative workforce, and a more secure nation, the humanities and social sciences are the heart of the matter, the keeper of the republic—a source of national memory and civic vigor, cultural understanding and communication, individual fulfillment and the ideals we hold in common. They are critical to a democratic society. In the Humanities you will develop skills of critical analysis, gathering evidence and evaluating arguments. You will examine texts and other sources carefully, learning skills that can make your interpretation precise and convincing. We will help you sharpen these skills, that will prove invaluable lifelong, both in your private life and in your career. We will empower you to think for yourself, to learn to work in teams with others, and to present your case in writing, in discussions and in presentations.
