There is not one single “Humanism,” but many. That is the fundamental assumption of this course, which seeks to explore a number of “Humanisms” which have arisen and flourished in different parts of the world and across time. Students new to Humanism will end the course with an appreciation of the core values of Humanism, and how they can be discovered and applied in different ways in different cultures. Students who already have a basic understanding of Humanism will deepen their appreciation of the worldview, learning how complex and variegated are the expressions of Humanism. The intent of the course is to broaden students’ understanding of what “Humanism” can mean, by complexifying traditional Humanist narratives and presenting lesser-known ones.

Humanist Studies Program:
Humanist Worldviews: Then & Now is the pre-requisite course in the Humanist Studies Program (HSP) where students have the opportunity to become a Certified Humanist Professional (CHP) by earning a Certificate in Humanist Studies. HSP is dedicated to fostering leadership that is ethically grounded, informed, skillful, globally responsible, personally sustainable, and committed to meeting the genuine needs of real people. It offers students an opportunity to collaborate with a diverse faculty and student body who take a non-theistic, naturalistic approach to humanism, whether interpreted in secular or congregational terms.
