Simpson Center for the Humanities



The Simpson Center offers courses at the graduate level that reflect its commitments to crossdisciplinary research, digital humanities, and public scholarship.

These courses are typically one-credit, credit/no credit, allowing students to fit them into regular departmental coursework. They are frequently structured around the work of a visiting speaker, letting students grow familiar with a speaker's work and deepening the possibility of real exchange while they are here.
