Sewanee's team-taught Interdisciplinary Humanities Program introduces students to the cultural products and practices that have informed the development of Western cultures. Along with critical examination of "the West" and consideration of what it has meant--and means today--to be human, students refine their writing and speaking skills and participate actively in Humanities seminars. Though students may enroll in individual courses within the program, those who complete the entire complement of three core Humanities courses will be able to conduct interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary critical inquiry, evaluate the implications of historical change over time, and approach the study of cultures--their own and others--in intellectually informed and responsible ways.
