Humanities at IE
IE is one of the only institutions globally to include humanities core education as a mandatory part of all its degree programs. The humanities represents an integral part of the IE identity, and our students, regardless of their degree program, are all invited to participate in the wider dialogues that humanistic learning fosters and encourages.
Our mandate is to bring the humanities into a professional-degree environment. As such, we are deeply embedded across all aspects of academic life, in both the undergraduate and graduate programs, in and out of the classroom.
Skills and Knowledge
Humanities transversal courses are design to equip students with humanistic knowledge and skills, through courses in disciplines such as Art History, Literature, Philosophy, Classics, Cultural Theory and History. These classes are integral to IE University's mission to foster analytical skills and critical thinking for all of our students.
The Humanities Centre also supports extracurricular initiatives in the Humanities. These include a “Humanities Discussion Series”, held regularly throughout the year on both our Madrid and Segovia campuses, and the “Art and Business Club”. The Centre also organises an “Alumni Lecture Series”, which brings invited speakers to talk to the IE community about their field of research or interest.
