Have you ever heard that saying “Great minds think alike?" That’s one point of view you won't find in the Department of Humanities at the University of Mobile. What you will discover is a challenging, dynamic exchange of ideas in classes taught by professors who passionately believe that learning to think critically, creatively, analytically and comprehensively is key to understanding yourself and your world.
As a humanities major, you will engage in informal intellectual discussions with professors and students who have a diversity of thought. You may choose to participate in the annual reading marathon, where works such as Don Quixote, Crime and Punishment, or Moby Dick are read non-stop beneath the stars. Or you may make plans to join your professors on a road trip to see Congress in action in Washington, D.C., and come face-to-face with man's inhumanity to man at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
The humanities will prepare you to live your life to the fullest, to know who you are, what you believe, and why you believe it. The liberal arts and sciences education you gain through the study of communication, English, humanities, and modern foreign language will prepare you for any career field, and lay the groundwork for advanced study in graduate school, law school and seminary.
