The Humanities Division is responsible for majors and minors in Communication Studies, English (Linguistics, Literature, Writing), French, German, Humanities, Philosophy and Religious Studies, and Spanish.

Mission

Humanities majors and minors explore that unique human creation, language-not only for communication, but also in culture, literary art and philosophical and religious thought.

Program objectives

  1. Provide students focused opportunities to investigate how culture is constructed and manifested in language.
  2. Help students develop the creativity, critical thinking, written and oral skills necessary to maximize their individual and professional development.
  3. Encourage students to make connections across disciplines and cultures.

More detailed program information, including program admission requirements, can be obtained by contacting the division at 503-838-8408 or at wou.edu/las/humanities.
