Humanities

The study of literature, history, and philosophy make up the cornerstones of humanistic inquiry at Antioch College. Each major within the Humanities requires coursework within the specific disciplinary area, but also allows significant freedom for the student to develop their own interests. Every student who graduates with a degree in the Humanities will be exposed to the humanities in a broader sense through the 210 series of courses. Additionally, students will be encouraged to develop interdisciplinary strategies for reading and research.
