At Jacksonville University, Humanities is all about making connections. Students learn how they, as individuals, connect with their own culture as well as other cultural​ traditions. JU offers a multidisciplinary program in humanities with a broad range of courses in humanities, fine arts, literature, history, language, science, philosophy and religion. Students develop critical thinking skills as they examine the aesthetic, intellectual, religious, social and political worlds we live in, with relation to different times, places and people.

Humanities professors at JU know how to connect with students, too. In s​mall class settings, students are encouraged to explore, question, and analyze. Engaged learning, internships and study abroad opportunities also connect students to real- world experience and provide invaluable lessons for life.
