The Humanities at Otterbein
Oh, the Humanities!

You know that the humanities are more than college majors – and, at Otterbein, we know that, too. The humanities are the foundation for exploring and understanding the human experience, as well as how we process and document that experience. But how does that translate into a career? We’ll tell you.

Why the Humanities

Why Study the Humanities at Otterbein?

Through the humanities you learn to think critically, analytically and creatively to solve complex problems. You learn to ask questions in order to gain new insights, as well as find meaning, inspiration and wisdom in your own and others’ successes and failures. You also learn to see the connection between all areas of knowledge, and to understand the past in order to envision the future.
