HUMAN-MIN - Humanities (Minor)

Program Overview

Humanities Core (HumCore) gives Stanford undergraduates an accessible, structured/curated introduction to culture, art, literature, politics, religion, and history.

It is a chance to explore traditions, texts, and ideas worldwide through an integrated set of elective courses.

HumCore affirms our shared global reality, teaching humanities courses that reflect human lives and histories from all over the globe without privileging a single narrative. No tradition or canon exists in a vacuum, and throughout history, any given culture is shaped by encounters with other cultures and forms of thought.
