How F&M Does Humanities 

When you hear us say “humanities,” we mean subjects that study aspects of human society and culture. Subjects as wide-ranging as art and art history, music, Arabic, dance, philosophy, literature and more can be found under the humanities umbrella.

When you study humanities at F&M, you'll explore the ways people across different times and places make sense of their lives in diverse forms of artistic, cultural and intellectual expression.

Through your courses and hands-on work, you'll examine the range of human experience through the study of languages, literatures, philosophies, religions and cultural and artistic productions.

Out-of-the-Classroom Learning

We emphasize hands-on experiential work. When you study humanities at F&M, you’ll have opportunities to step out of the classroom and into the field to engage in different, dynamic forms of learning. With off-campus study and research opportunities, internships and more, you’ll collaborate with world-class humanities faculty, engage with the community, get practical, real-world experience and explore questions students elsewhere might only read about.
