"Isaac Newton once said, 'If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.' While I, of course, cannot claim any discoveries to compare with Newton's, I do think that the Humanities Program provides the priceless gift of putting all its students on those same gigantic shoulders. Our position is one of confidence and humility--humbly recognizing our dependency on our predecessors, while confidently seeing more than they could ever dream. The Humanities Program allows us students to understand and internalize the development of Western civilization, thereby implementing its greatest insights in our lives, ethically and academically."
