Humanities Center

Students on campus

The humanities are foundational to the liberal arts, which means they're central to the intellectual, cultural and political life of Bucknell.

At the Humanities Center, our mission is to:

  • Enhance the visibility of the humanities on campus and beyond.
  • Coordinate transdepartmental humanities endeavors.
  • Create an environment that fosters pedagogical excellence and student and faculty scholarship.

Fellowships and Grant Opportunities 

Thanks to the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Office of the President, the Bucknell Humanities Center offers several fellowship opportunities for faculty and students working in the humanities.

A Home for the Humanities

Located in the heart of campus, Hildreth-Mirza Hall is a home for the humanities at Bucknell.

Home to Bucknell’s Humanities Center, the Bucknell University Press and other humanities-based initiatives, the hall offers students a relaxed environment to study in groups or the privacy to work alone.

Students from all majors are welcome to use the center.

Humanities Council

The Humanities Council is comprised of faculty members from various academic subjects, whose goal is to create transdepartmental humanities endeavors and help aid the center in its mission of fostering scholarship and pedagogical excellence in both students and faculty.
