The undergraduate Humanities programs provide opportunities to develop an extensive cultural and historical knowledge base while fostering the resourcefulness in research, adaptive critical thinking, and persuasive communication needed in professional settings.
The undergraduate Humanities programs at Lesley University instruct students to view culture and history through multiple perspectives, which in turn produce original and distinctive insight into the greater global community. The specialized skills and concepts taught in the Art History, Creative Writing, English and History bachelor's degree programs are supplemented with examinations of the social and societal dynamics that influenced major cultural achievements throughout the historical record.
All majors emphasize proper research methods, critical thinking strategies, and continuous refinement of writing, communication and presentation skills in order to effectively translate classroom studies into professional competency. Small class sizes, active mentorship from dedicated faculty and immersion in internship settings effectively guide students in shaping their careers through study in the Humanities.
