About **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. Humanities and Fine Arts:
Ranging from traditional areas that have been at the heart of a liberal arts education for thousands of years (such as Classics, History, and Philosophy) to programs that are redefining the university in the 21st century (such as Media Arts and Technology and Film and Media Studies) the arts and humanities at **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. represent both the past and the future.
The Division of Humanities and Fine Arts includes a broad spectrum of languages and literatures, as well as the performing and visual arts. Our departments and interdisciplinary programs focus on the intellectual, historical, and artistic traditions of cultures throughout the world and the modes of expressions and representation that have given them voice and form. Building on this foundation, the arts and humanities are responding to the cultural changes that must be engaged in the university and in a global society of the 21st century.
Part of the College of Letters and Science, the Division of Humanities and Fine Arts includes twenty-two departments and programs that offer twenty-nine undergraduate degrees and twenty-eight graduate degrees. Centers, initiatives, collaborative research projects, and interdepartmental programs promote interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship that bring together students and faculty across the university. Internationally recognized scholars and artists advance their fields with innovative research, publications, and creative activity that both preserve our traditions and map new fields of study.
The Carsey-Wolf Center supports research, teaching, and public programming about media. The Center aims to foster the creativity, critical skills, historical understanding, and new forms of literacy that students need to be informed citizens in the 21st century. By engaging industry professionals and policy makers, as well as students and scholars, The Center seeks to increase public understanding of media’s role in society and inform policy debates.
