Spring on the York College campus


The humanities–the study of languages, literature, philosophy, and religion–are disciplines of imagination and analysis, telling us where we have been and helping us envision where we are going. From the humanities, we learn how to think and argue, how to speak and write, and how to love and live. Put simply, the humanities study that which makes us human.

Join us this year as we examine the importance of the humanities in our lives by thinking about language translation, philosophy, literature of science, and medical humanities.
