Explore What It Means to Be Human

School of Humanities

Attention storytellers, communicators and empathetic thinkers: Our School of Humanities gives you the opportunity to study what it means to be human. From discussing ethics and studying history to analyzing literature and sharing new perspectives, humanities students always try to dig a little deeper to understand the different facets of life — as any thought leader would do.

Why Greensboro College?

At Greensboro College, humanities students know it isn’t a matter of asking, “What can I do with my degree?” but rather, “What ​can’t ​I do with my degree?” In the School of Humanities, students have an opportunity to learn and master persuasive communication, critical thinking and creative problem solving — skills that make you unstoppable not just in your career, but in life.

My Defining Moment

“I was one of those lucky students who had the opportunity to do not one, but two internships during my time at Greensboro College. My time at Greensboro College and working at these internships was an extraordinary experience that not only increased my knowledge and awakened my spirit, but also enriched my life. I will always be grateful for that.”

Stacey Smith, Class of 2007
