Exactly, what are the Humanities?
Simply put, the humanities are the study of how people connect to the human experience through history, culture, and traditions.
The Humanities allow us to explore stories from people who came before us, appreciate places that have changed with time, and learn from past ways of thinking in order to form a brighter future for generations to come.
Missouri Humanities offers programs exploring Missouri’s Cultural Heritage, sharing Veteran’s stories, preserving Native American and Civil War history, and much more.
