Humanities Extension Program

The Humanities Extension Program connects North Carolina public schools with faculty from the college. Our scholars are available to share their knowledge and expertise with students in grades K-12.

About the Program

The program aims 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.

Our visiting 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 students. The length of programs varies and can be customized to meet your needs and schedule.
