Contextualizing Humanities Education for All

A three-year project incorporating humanities content into preprofessional courses.

Community colleges have come to be regarded as workforce development institutions and only secondarily as what they really are: important components of the higher education landscape. At the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC), we believe the humanities are vital for teaching us how to be fully human within our era. Through the Contextualizing Humanities Education for All program, our team will infuse humanities ideas into non-humanities disciplines through faculty collaboration on cross-curriculum development, and workshops to introduce students to skills in written and oral communication, analytical thinking, collaboration, creative thinking, and problem-solving. Humanities and non-humanities faculty will collaborate to design a variety of paired courses, programs, and a Distinction in Humanities recognition to provide multiple touch points for exposing students to humanities concepts and helping them apply this mindset to the rest of their education and life.
