Welcome to the Higgins School of Humanities

At Clark, we believe that humanistic inquiries and practices are crucial to our development as intellectually curious, socially engaged, and ethically-oriented beings. Learning through the humanities and arts grounds our capacity to engage with societal complexities — by developing historical, cultural, literary, linguistic, and philosophical consciousness, and encouraging emphatic and aesthetic ways of knowing.
