Mitchell’s Humanities department plays an integral role in the Liberal Arts foundation of the College: providing exposure to many disciplines, cultivating core experiences in developing critical thinking, offering global perspectives, and exploring values, ethics and civic roles. Courses in areas such as literature, fine arts, history, government, and ethics broaden your thinking and create depth in your analytical skills, complementing each major at the College in essential ways.


The Humanities department offers almost 100 classes to engage your interest: art and art history, literature, government and political science, history, music, philosophy, world religions, theatre and stagecraft, and world languages.

Students may apply for a political science internship through the Humanities department. The internship is granted through application with Legislative Internship Committee in Hartford.

The Humanities department does not offer a major, but there are two minor programs in History/Government and Theatre. Courses in the Humanities are required to complete a degree at Mitchell College.

Humanities classes have taught me how to look at things from a different perspective and how to relate to people from different cultures and backgrounds.

A few words on fit.


"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.


If you are looking for a college that: 


  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities




…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
