Humanities at Michigan Tech engages in teaching and research across language, culture, and technology. With an international scope and interdisciplinary approach, the department works at the intersections of communication, composition, literature, modern languages, philosophy, rhetoric, visual studies, linguistics, gender studies, and technical communication. Emerging areas of emphasis include media, global studies, and diversity. In learning and scholarship, students and faculty work to cultivate the whole human being. Students develop the communicative, analytic, and cultural knowledge to thrive in all aspects of their future lives.
