Classics, Humanities, and Italian Studies (CHI)

http://cola.unh.edu/chi

The Department of Classics, Humanities, and Italian Studies (CHI) unites three interdisciplinary programs and leverages the knowledge, research, and teaching of additional faculty from around the College of Liberal Arts to provide a uniquely comprehensive curriculum in the humanities. Courses allow students to explore fundamental questions of human life and discover how these have been answered by thinkers, artists, and writers from the ancient world to the present day. The classics and Italian studies programs concentrate on the Mediterranean world and its cultures, while the humanities program broadens the focus with critical inquiry into not only the reception of ancient Greek and Roman civilizations but also the ways in which comparative studies across time, space, and cultures can illuminate the human condition. The programs offer an explicitly comparative and interdisciplinary training that nourishes expertise across arts, cultures, geographies, and languages, and develops cultural fluency and critical thinking skills that form the basis for lifelong learning.

The faculty of CHI is committed to combining these theoretical considerations with practical concerns in order to help the University's students become productive, responsible, and involved citizens and leaders of their communities, businesses, and political institutions. Students thus gain both fundamental disciplinary knowledge, such as competency in a foreign language, and also explore perspectives that allow them to appreciate and critique the values, ideals, and intellectual and artistic accomplishments of individuals and societies both present and past.

For those students who wish to study abroad, the department is also home to two programs in Italy and one in Hungary. Students of any major can take part in a year-round program in Ascoli Piceno (UNH-in-Italy), the January-term program in Rome (UNH-in-Rome), or a spring semester program in Budapest (Humanities Spring Budapest Program).

The Department offers three different undergraduate majors (classics, humanities, and Italian studies) and five minors (classics, Latin, Greek, humanities, and Italian studies). The curriculum includes a variety of courses in English in interdisciplinary humanities, classical civilization, and Italian studies and also provides extensive language coursework in Ancient and Modern Greek, Italian, and Latin, as well as additional offerings in Hittite and Sanskrit.
