Humanities Residential Program

This dynamic program provides a residential learning experience for students interested in the ways that ideas find expression through the arts. Residents represent all academic majors, including those in the natural and social sciences, but have in common a special interest in the arts (literary, theatrical, visual, aural) and their relationship to history, philosophy, and religion. Many students minor in the Humanities, although this is not a residential requirement.

The Humanities Residential Program will be housed in Regester for those first-year students who take the Humanities seminar, while non-first year students interested in the Humanities will have the option to live in Thomas in the Humanities Flat.

Humanities flat students participate in a variety co-curricular activities that expose them to the arts. These include off-campus trips to artistic events (plays, musicals, symphonies, operas, fairs, etc.), museums, and lectures, as well as in-house events such as open-mic nights, talent shows, faculty talks, film screenings, and the traditional “Palaver Dinners” that combine student-cooked meals with informal speeches on a range of art-related topics.

Honors Residential Program 

The Honors Program at Puget Sound offers students a chance to fulfill their Core Requirements in courses that focus on classic texts of Eastern and Western civilization. Each year, 34 students are selected to participate in this four-year program. These students will take classes together and build a common base of knowledge from which to draw on in subsequent classes. During senior year, each student in the program will write an Honors Thesis in their major or field of study and then present their research to the community. At graduation, students who complete the program will be designated as Coolidge Otis Chapman Honors Scholars.
