“The humanities do not just teach us a series of tools. These fields that study thoughts, texts, histories, languages, and cultures make it possible for us to better understand ourselves and to build a deeper comprehension of our connections to others — others in our university, in our city, in our country, and across the globe.”
All undergraduate students engage with the humanities at some point during their studies at UWM.
Each year, about 2,000 students major in the humanities and humanistic social sciences, where they are taught by more than 200 faculty.
In this video, meet four champions of the humanities at UWM. Hear why they’re passionate about what they teach and what their students learn from them.
