Welcome to the Department of Humanities

In the Humanities Department at SFU, students read and study the great texts of Western and Eastern civilizations from Ancient Greece to Modern Germany, from Taoism to Christianity, from the Italian fresco to Chinese film.

Humanities courses appeal to students who are curious about many diverse areas such as classical and medieval studies, modern thought and culture, Renaissance humanism, and eastern and western religions.

Crossing disciplinary boundaries, students will learn to pose questions and address concerns central to understanding the human condition.
