The Humanities

You're claiming your seat in the front of the bus with Rosa Parks. You're translating secret documents as a World War II double agent. You're establishing corporate ethics policies for Fortune 500 companies, or covering the collapse of the Berlin Wall as a broadcast journalist. Plato is methodically explaining to you the relationship between truth and beauty. Travel through time to learn about events that impacted culture and determined our history. If you want to understand how individual philosophies, cultures, belief systems, and communications impact the world we live in, consider a major or minor in the humanities at Iowa State University.
