Welcome to the Division of Humanities
The Division of Humanities at SLU-Madrid encompasses classical languages, history, philosophy, and theology. These areas of study form specific undergraduate programs - majors and minors - and also constitute Saint Louis University's core curriculum. In their humanities classes, students consider some of the most important questions that humans ask, which, we hope, prepares them for their futures across disciplines and careers.
Our goal is to strengthen our students' critical thinking and analytical skills to prepare them to understand themselves, others, and their place in the world.
