Offered by American Studies .

Students use the tools and methods of the humanities to build knowledge democratically and respond critically to challenges of the twenty-first century, ranging from social inequalities to climate change. Public humanities work focuses on critically addressing social problems and achieving social justice. The courses in the Public Humanities Minor prepare students to work collaboratively and creatively to connect original research and programming more deeply with local and/or global communities, public-interest groups, or other publics. The minor builds skills for creating sustainable projects that actively engage the public in meaningful dialogue, interaction, and knowledge production.
