The Heritage of the West in World Perspective


Heritage is no ordinary history or Western civilization course. It is a wide-ranging study of the history of ideas, cultures, religions, creative works, and pivotal problems that have shaped humanity for thousands of years. Beginning with fossils and ending with speculations about the future, this program brings together history, literature, philosophy, religion, and the arts in an integrated approach to the study of Western culture as part of a global cultural history. It is the equivalent of two year-long courses. For more information about the Heritage program, please look through the information at this website and feel free to contact any of our faculty or staff.
