Magnet Vision:
In the 21st century, the old barriers between the humanities and sciences are fading away. Choosing an education based in the humanities does not mean that one is choosing not to study math, science, and technology. In fact, science and math are an important part of our program. Careers in medicine, technology, ecology, and engineering all require knowledge of how people think and behave. Studying the humanities means creating informed citizens who can think of themselves in a democratic society. When we study the humanities, we learn about ourselves.
