Discover the complexity of the human experience
What does it mean when museums are asked to return works of art to their cultures of origin? When Native Americans protest a ski center’s proposal to make artificial snow on a mountain they hold sacred? When schools battle over the teaching of evolution? If asking “what does it all mean?” is your passion, you will encounter and engage with cultures from around the world in the past and present through a degree in Comparative Cultural Studies with emphases in Art History, Public Humanities, and the Comparative Study of Religions.
Spark new passions and fuel your interests
We offer a wide range of courses—in art history, literature, philosophical and religious traditions, arts & cultural management, museum studies, digital and environmental humanities, cultural diversity, and many more fields. Our faculty will challenge and support you in your academic journey and beyond through career development. We encourage students to engage with the world through our study abroad programs and with our vibrant local community in Flagstaff through networking and internship opportunities at local museums, libraries, art galleries, and more.
