Columbia University’s thirteen humanities departments are among the pillars upholding the stellar reputation of both the College and the University. Long known for housing a remarkable array of public intellectuals, Columbia humanities departments bring the world’s best art and ideas to the attention of those within the university and beyond. In 2014-15, the humanities faculty identified key areas for innovation. Some of these proposed changes will strengthen traditional areas of excellence; others will allow us to expand into important emerging areas. Our goal for the next decade is to make the humanities more digital, more public, and more global.
