If you are wondering what the Humanities are, our American History professor says, the humanities are "the study of what it means to be human so that we can all learn how to be more humane.” My thoughts on the value of the humanities (I'm the art history professor and academic director) can be found in testimony I gave to a Commission on the Humanities.
