Humanities Scholars

A group of Miami students having a round table discussion

Students in this program will explore the role of the humanities (including history, languages, literature, film, civics, philosophy, religion, and the arts), in both the modern world as well as throughout history, within an intellectual community of thinkers. Scholars’ benefits include:

  • Priority inclusion in the Humanities in Action Living Learning Community through Residence Life.
  • First-year Scholars-only course exploring a question of fundamental importance to human life, taught by a distinguished professor.
  • Guaranteed enrollment in the Altman Program in the Humanities undergraduate course team-taught by eminent Altman Fellow professors.
  • Invitations to small-group events with renowned speakers, including authors, journalists, and innovators. 
  • Guaranteed enrollment in the January Research Methods Workshop to help launch a research project and/or preparing a proposal for the Undergraduate Summer Scholars Program.
  • In the first and second years, attend the Paths to Research in the Humanities dinner, where the Associate Director of the Humanities Center will present resources and possible pathways to producing an independent undergraduate research project. 
  • Guaranteed enrollment in the Summer Humanities Institute, an Oxford-based program that assembles a small community of student-scholars to work with peers and faculty on sophisticated independent research projects.
