What I have gained from studying the Humanities:
Studying the Humanities has allowed me to trace the origins of many of the world’s cultures from their roots and subsequently gain a new understanding of their traditions. Practices of literature, history, philosophy, religion, and art had previously appeared to me as ubiquitous and unchanging elements of human society. After examining each of these traditions’ evolution in Western society, I have gained a more nuanced perspective, learning in what ways these traditions have changed over time and how they can differ across peoples. With this newfound point of view, I can approach contemporary cultures with a better grasp of what separates and what connects us.
