Students who study the humanities as part of a well-rounded liberal arts education explore questions fundamental to the human existence. Who are we? Where have we been?

Through the study of the humanities, students develop the skills to prepare them for both their careers and a civically engaged life.  Dr. Scott Casper, Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences and Professor of History at UMBC, provides this commentary.
