Humanities & Arts

The innovative Humanities & Arts (HUA) program allows WPI students to embrace art, theatre, music, and other forms of creative expression, as well as explore themes of complexity, diversity, and the richness of human experience by examining art/architecture, history, languages, literature, philosophy, or religion. The HUA department’s goal is to build well-rounded, globally aware graduates with superior analytical thinking skills and a handle on the ambiguous problems that will characterize their future careers.
