Experience the Humanities

The humanities at Puget Sound comprise a variety of disciplines that address questions of enduring significance to human beings, while tackling some of the most pressing issues that confront our society today, including environmental crisis, technological change, systemic racism and xenophobia, the breakdown of civil society and political discourse, war between religions, and changing conceptions of gender and sexualities.  Students who study the humanities become strong writers and researchers, as well as versatile thinkers, able to respond thoughtfully and solve problems creatively in a variety of situations and careers.

Our departments and programs offer students many possibilities to grow as people and expand their intellectual horizons, even as they build the skills necessary for success in their professional and academic lives after Puget Sound.
