Humanities in New Haven

In addition to providing a rich intellectual experience to undergraduates, the Humanities Program is also involved in several initiatives to introduce the humanities to the broader New Haven community. Below are a number of projects and initiatives directed towards residents of New Haven - not all affilitated with the University - in which members of the Humanities community are engaged.  

Citizens Thinkers Writers is a two-week summer residential program and year-long fellowship program at Yale University for rising seniors from New Haven public schools who are interested in exploring fundamental human questions in a college setting. 

The Whitney Humanities Center embodies Yale University’s longstanding commitment to the humanities. The Center hosts a wide array of events including lectures, film screenings, artist exhibitions, and concerts open to the public.
