The study of the humanities offers particular insights
into the human condition by training young minds to make intellectual,
aesthetic, moral, and spiritual sense of the world, and encouraging all members
of an intellectual community to think critically about our connections to the
lives of others--past, present and future.
The Humanities Division at Colby encompasses ten departments and one program: Art, Classics, Creative Writing, East Asian Studies, English, French & Italian, German & Russian, Music, Philosophy, Spanish and Theater & Dance.
