The Study of Making Connections

Humanities is the study of making connections, a quest to understand “life in all of its manifestations.” Art, sculpture, architecture, myth, religion, music, philosophy, and literature all provide a mirror to reflect the characteristics of a culture, its values, themes, and visions. Each is part of the web of life, giving insight into the totality.

Creativity and Instinct of Artists

Humanities seeks to explore the vital creativity and instinct of artists who brought about new insights in emerging cultures, the creative geniuses that helped to forge innovative ideas and modes of understanding, the creation and focus of religions that tapped the depths of the human spirit, philosophies and modes of thinking that shaped the consciousness of humankind, and the architecture that brought new ideas to form.

Humanities at Woodland Community College currently includes courses in Humanities, Music, and Theatre.
