Welcome to the IE Humanities Center

IE is one of the only institutions globally to include humanities core education as a mandatory part of all its degree programs. As such, part of our mandate is bring the humanities into a professional-degree environment.

We are responsible for coordinating all types of activities in the humanities across IE, from teaching programs, to fellowships, to community events. The humanities represents an integral part of the IE identity, and our students, regardless of their degree program, are all invited to participate in the wider dialogues that humanistic learning fosters and encourages. As such, we are deeply embedded across all aspects of academic life, in both the undergraduate and graduate programs, in and out of the classroom.
