Explore the human experience at Bemidji State University.
The Department of Humanities equips students to problem-solve and navigate within the world of ideas and culture.
Current Course Offerings
Each of our programs puts the past in touch with the present. Our premise is that students who see the past at work in the problems of today will see them more clearly.
Thinking On Your Feet
The Humanities emphasize a student’s ability to put problems in context and see them from multiple perspectives. Tools like Reacting to the Past push our students to articulate nuanced problems in professional and civic ethics.
Putting It Together
Professional and civic life places new demands on BSU graduates. Courses in history, politics and art prepare our students to put technical knowledge in touch with knowledge of a variety of cultures and ways of life.
