Humanities Extension Program

Our Humanities Extension Program directly connects North Carolina's public school classroom teachers with faculty from the college who want to share their knowledge and expertise with students in grades K-12.

The program creates new partnerships and builds on existing relationships between the college and public schools across the state. Our aim is to foster an understanding of and appreciation for the humanities and social sciences among students. The program is also a powerful recruitment tool for college-bound young people, exposing high school students to potential areas of study.

Visiting humanities scholars travel to North Carolina public schools to present on topics related to:

  • Anthropology
  • Archaeology
  • Communication
  • Culture
  • English
  • Ethics
  • History
  • International Studies
  • Languages
  • Leadership
  • Literature
  • Nonprofits
  • Philosophy
  • Politics / Public Policy
  • Psychology
  • Religious Studies
  • Social Work
  • Sociology

Faculty members tailor their presentations to the age and education level of the students. The length of programs varies and can be customized to meet your schedule. Learn more about the college’s Humanities Extension Program through this interview with program director Dr. David Zonderman.
