NSU Center for the Humanities

In addition to championing core academic disciplines in the humanities such as history, philosophy, composition and rhetoric, criticism and theory of the performing and visual arts, literature and language studies, the Center for the Humanities is dedicated to highlighting the significant role the humanities play in related fields in the social sciences. The NSU Center for the Humanities also aims to demonstrate the relevance of the humanities as a complement to the core STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math) with a view to encouraging students and scholars in those disciplines to explore these connections. The Center for the Humanities serves as a resource for both students and scholars at NSU and from elsewhere by hosting workshops, conferences, and other professional development opportunities. The Center for the Humanities also serves as a resource for teachers and students in the primary and secondary education system in the South Florida region, providing material resources and training opportunities. The Center is dedicated to engaging the wider South Florida community by partnering with community organizations and participating in local cultural initiatives that highlight the humanities.
