Arts & Humanities
Arts and Humanities refers to a broad range of subjects that include—but are not limited to—English, literature, journalism and mass communication, music, philosophy, writing, visual arts, graphic design, ethics, world languages and religion. Students who select a major in the arts and humanities, therefore, study the achievements of the human spirit and mind. They work within a variety of disciplines in order to acquire a deeper understanding of themselves, civilization and the world.

Meet our Humanities Students
Halle Burke, of Warren, won the 2015-16 Global Citizens Honors Program’s (GCHP) full-tuition scholarship through an essay contest and interviews with Olivet College faculty earlier this summer.
An English major, Burke did not expect to win this award. She was overcome with emotions when a phone call full of good news came her way.
