In the Global Humanities and Religions Program, you have a traditional liberal (that is, liberating) education that promotes freedom from ignorance and prejudice.

All Global Humanities courses for 2017-18 are listed under Global Humanities in course search with the suffix GH. Religious Studies courses appear under RLST and South & South-East Asian Studies courses under SSEA.
