Course Descriptions

The HUMANITIES study what it means to be human within a contemporary or historical context. These disciplines analyze the ideas and expressive artifacts of individuals or groups emphasizing qualitative rather than quantitative methods. The Humanities provide us with the broad frameworks within which enduring questions of existence, relationships, values, and aesthetics can be examined from multiple perspectives. The SOCIAL SCIENCES study human interactions and the social institutions in which these occur. These disciplines tend to adopt scientific methods, emphasizing quantitative rather than qualitative approaches. The Social Sciences provide us with the broad frameworks within which to analyze the nature of social systems, processes, and outcomes.
