What do we mean by humanities?

Humanities is a study of world culture emphasizing the basic classical scholastic approach of moral philosophy – thus equipping students with the tools for a lifetime of learning: a working knowledge of the timetables of history, a background understanding of the great literature classics, a familiarity with the sweep of art, music, and ideas, a worldview comprehension of basic geography, a principle approach to discerning the significance of current events, and an emphasis on a Christian life paradigm.

The idea is to study human achievement in context both in terms of its historical and societal sequence and in terms of its providential and cultural importance. Out of this integrated understanding of God’s world every other subject and discipline is formed.
