The Humanities Division at Oxford College serves students across the College, with faculty and programs in the languages, literature, visual and performing arts, philosophy, religion, and cultural studies.
Giving to the Humanities Division helps to provide students with an enriching liberal arts education that goes beyond the classroom: film screenings and discussions with experts; state of the art equipment for classes from music to sculpture; visits with nationally-known authors who inspire students to read, write, and think more deeply; and co-curricular opportunities like the field trips and class dinners that bring students and faculty together and make the Oxford experience truly unique.
