Best Humanities/Humanistic Studies colleges in the U.S. 2022

While the study of human biology focuses on the human body, Humanities/Humanistic Studies delves into human culture as the other side of the coin that makes us human. Humanities students learn to understand a broad range of concepts as they relate to human culture, and vice versa. Such concepts include history, literature, arts, religion, philosophy, language, and music.

To succeed in a Humanities/Humanistic Studies program, you’ll need excellent reading and communication skills (oral/written), the ability to conduct research, and an appreciation for diversity among humanity. Courses will challenge you to read a variety of works and draw conclusions about humanity from them. Because humanities graduates tend to grasp how the world works, and how business works more quickly compared to their peers, employers often hire them for positions that require critical thinking on the fly and the flexibility to wear multiple hats. Common career paths include journalism/writing and publishing, human resources, marketing, museums, and management. Humanities is also a great springboard for students who want to go into teaching.
