HUM 101 Human Thought and the Humanities

The humanities have been the foundation of learning in the West for more than three millennia as people have sought to better understand themselves and their world.  Whereas sciences and math examine the facts of human experience, the humanities allow thinkers to explore the meaning of those experiences through the tools of literature, art, history, and philosophy.  This class will introduce students to the humanities both as the foundation for education and as a human pursuit of meaning.  This class will also evaluate the nature and methods of the humanities in light of a biblical worldview.
