The Humanities encompass thought and language and reflect, interpret, and communicate concepts, values, beliefs, and traditions held individually, socially, and culturally. Study of the humanities develops an awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the human condition and of how that condition relates to personal and societal needs, values, and achievements. The performing and visual arts are unique in that the mode of communication is primarily presentational rather than discursive, and the deepest meanings in the arts are non-verbal.
