|Field of Study:||Humanities/Humanistic Studies
|Description:||The Humanities Colloquium is a foundation year at StFX, where great minds don’t always think alike. The Latin word colloquium means “conversation.” In the Humanities Colloquium you will have many conversations about the most important ideas: conversations with great thinkers from the past, with professors, with students, and with invited speakers, both in the classroom and outside.
It is a first year option in which enrolled students all take the same three sections of Philosophy, English, and History. These courses are taught collaboratively, as if they were a single course. Lectures, assignments, and discussions are coordinated to bring out exciting connections among the disciplines, and to avoid conflicts in assignment due dates. What makes us human? If you want to know, study the humanities: those specialized fields of inquiry - religious studies, philosophy, literature, history, languages, history - which focus on what makes us human. Your companions will be ancient Greek philosophers, mediaeval saints, Renaissance artists and modern revolutionaries.
