If you are a creative and intellectually curious person, you’ll love the humanities. Courses in humanities connect our development as human beings to our civilization’s accomplishments in music, literature, language, rhetoric, art and literature. At Faulkner we study the developments of civilization through the lens of Christianity.
Whereas some studies train you for a specific career, the humanities train you to know yourself so that your chosen career becomes an expression of your own range of personal characteristics and interests. At Faulkner, we believe that you first know yourself in relation to God in order to know yourself as an individual; then you’ll have an easier time realizing God’s purpose for your life.
In a practical sense, the study of humanities employs research, writing, speaking, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. The humanities student is a versatile thinker and worker with the ability to make connections between people, things, and ideas.
