What is Humanities?
Simply put, the humanities is the study of how people connect to the human experience through history, culture, and traditions.
The Humanities allow us to explore stories from people who came before us, appreciate places that have changed with time, and learn from past ways of thinking in order to form a brighter future for generations to come.
Missouri Humanities programs remember the past by exploring Missouri’s Heritage, sharing Veterans stories, preserving Native American and Civil War history, and cataloging archaeological artifacts and sites.
We focus on the future by supporting statewide environmental sustainability, providing educational opportunities to adults, and promoting literacy development for youth throughout the state.
