A student reading at Regent: Explore the Humanities Department in the College of Arts & Sciences.


The Humanities Department provides students with a knowledge of human beings and culture through examining the stories we tell, both historical and literary. By exploring the written record of human activity in the past and the literary works of Western civilization, the humanities enable us to understand better what it means to be human and how our stories reveal our values. The humanities help us to understand and evaluate the history and traditions that have helped to shape us—all from a Christian worldview.
