The Humanities Belong to Everyone
The Humanities are our cultural
and intellectual heritage - the
sum of human experience, thought, and expression.
They give us knowledge about the
past, insight about the present, and wisdom
for the future. They teach us about others and help
us to know ourselves
-Oregon Council for the Humanities
Mission Humanities majors and minors explore that unique human creation, language—not only for communication but also in culture, literary art, and philosophical and religious thought.
