    Preguntas frecuentes sobre artes y humanidades

  • Anyone that's ever watched a film, seen a concert, or gone to a museum has engaged with the arts. But what are “the humanities?” This broader category is defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as “literature, language, history, philosophy, and other subjects that are not a science.”

    Despite the fact that these two topics span everything from the new Ariana Grande album to Plato's Republic, they are often grouped together as one realm of academic study. That's because all of these works of culture are fundamental expressions of human society. And, by studying the historical context of creative works, as well as their formal characteristics, experts in the arts and humanities can draw out important lessons about who we are, how we think, and why our world is the way that it is.
