Humanities to understand the world

IE values the Humanities as a key element in understanding the reality of the world we live in through a global vision and the application of critical thinking.

Mission


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.

Initiatives


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.
