University of Nevada, Reno, College of Liberal Arts, Core Humanities Program

The Core Humanities courses at UNR examine the history, philosophy, cultural values, political systems, literature, and artistic works that have shaped societies in every continent from ancient times to the present. After completing the Core Humanities sequence of courses, students have a solid grounding in the knowledge and skills they need to navigate a complex and fast-changing world, including:
an understanding of the historical forces that created modern, diverse human cultures and the ways these cultures are interconnected both within the United States and across nations.
the ability to read, understand, summarize, analyze, and synthesize information drawn from a variety of written and cultural sources.
the ability to formulate interpretations and arguments, support them with evidence, and present them clearly and persuasively in both written and oral expression.
informed perspectives on the major political and ideological debates of our times and the ability to participate in those debates as American and global citizens.
