The College of the Humanities

The Digital Humanities workshop was hosted by the College of the Humanities. COH is home to four degree programs.

The Bachelor of Humanities (Great Books) degree program provides an integrated, interdisciplinary liberal education, combining the disciplines of history, philosophy, literature, political theory, religion, classics, art history, and music history. The BHum admits a cohort of 70 to 80 students each year and instruction is delivered through small discussion groups in the College rooms.

The Bachelor of Arts in Greek and Roman Studies degree program provides an education in the cultures of Ancient Greece and Rome. Students study all aspects of ancient culture: its literature, history, religion, art, and philosophy, with particular attention paid to the acquisition of the Greek and Latin languages.

The Bachelor of Arts in Religion degree program provides an education in world religions. Its field of study stretches from ancient times up to the modern day, and has as its purview both Western monotheistic religions and the major religions of the non-Western world. The study of religion seeks not only to understand each religious tradition in itself, but to see each as embedded within an entire culture.

The Minor in Medieval and Early Modern Studies focuses on the literature, history, philosophy, art, and archaeology of Europe and the Near East from the 6th to the 17th century.

Financial support for the workshop was provided by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Carleton Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the College of the Humanities, 1125@Carleton, and the Edgar and Dorothy Davidson Fund.
