The word humanities names a group of unique disciplines that share one common goal: to understand the human spirit. Humanists study language and culture. Where the scientist gathers data, the humanist looks for beauty, value, and meaning. When you study the humanities at Snow College, you can learn a foreign language, read a novel, write a poem. You can learn how language itself shapes the culture in which you live. You can be published in the Snow College literary magazine. You can read ancient philosophers and ponder your place in the universe. You can even equip yourself with skills for the workplace. More than ever before, businesses are looking for employees who can think critically and communicate effectively. Thinking and communicating are what humanists do best. So whether you are looking for a career or simply wish to enrich your life, consider the humanities. We're sure to have something that will interest and inspire you.
