Exposure to the humanities—engagement with texts, languages, history, culture, and civilization—is essential preparation for students to become informed citizens and productive members of society. It not only provides them the skills and knowledge to obtain gainful employment, but also the ability to adapt, grow, and learn throughout their lives. Through the humanities, students learn to navigate cultural similarities and differences; to read, digest, and interpret many different kinds of information; and to respond to the challenges of an increasingly interconnected world.
