The purpose of the Humanities degrees offered by Matteo Ricci College is to form more humane persons and to promote justice in our shared world. The coursework and experiences develop students who are alert to their own cultural presuppositions, capable of self-expression, and involved in meaningful work. A related objective is to keep alive the student-centered pedagogy of the best of Jesuit education through lively discussion in small classes, a curriculum centered on challenging questions, and close attention to individual students. The purpose of such an investigation is, above all else, to foster a life worth living through a deeper sense of one's own person and connection with our global community.
