Classroom discussion

The Humanities Core consists of parallel tracks, each of which focuses on the literary, cultural, and philosophical traditions of a broad region.

  • African (available fall 2019)
  • East Asian
  • European
  • Middle Eastern

Each track consists of three courses. Taking the three courses in sequence, beginning in fall quarter, provides a thorough introduction to a major branch of human history and cultural achievement.

While there are no prerequisites for any of the classes, you are encouraged to take the three courses in sequential order during your freshman or sophomore year.
