Institute for theHumanities

Empowering the World with the Human Experience


The Institute for the Humanities at Old Dominion University offers an interdisciplinary Master of Arts degree in the Humanities. The program allows students to pursue individualized programs of study that incorporate classes from across the College of Arts and Letters. As humanists, we are stewards of the value of the human experience to transform the world and improve the lives of our students.

ODU English major Aderonke Adeleke's "The Colors of Humanity" was the 2022-2023 winner of the ODU Institute for the Humanities Instagram Spoken Word/Art contest.
