Arts & Humanities Open House
THE ARTS & HUMANITIES AT DUKE UNIVERSITY
** DUE TO HURRICANE FLORENCE, THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. **
Duke is an engaging place to study and practice the arts and the humanities. The arts tie history, theory, and practice together and are one part of a broad spectrum of humanities disciplines at Duke. They include but are not limited to creative writing, dance, media and visual arts, music, and theater. The whole of the university serves as a resource for its artists, informing and deepening student and faculty exploration of artistic expression and tradition.
The humanities use historical, philosophical, and artistic approaches to study the human condition. They broaden and deepen human awareness and give training in language, art, and rhetoric. Crucial in a hyperconnected world, the humanities build the core competencies of citizenship.
