Our teaching philosophy

Our courses promise the same intellectual stimulation and intimate discussion of the small seminar room.

Each Hum School course is designed and taught by a world-class specialist who will be your guide as you explore meaningful issues and topics in philosophy, literature, history, and related subjects.

In a typical class session, your professor will introduce the week’s readings and then facilitate an open and engaging conversation. There are no essays or exams — just the challenge and fun of a humanities seminar taught by a world-class professor.
