EACH HUGO MENTORSHIP COMBINES AN INDEPENDENT RESEARCH PROJECT WITH EXPERT-GUIDED STUDY

Every project is unique, reflecting the students' specific learning objectives and interests. Final projects range from college-level research papers to product prototypes.
ALL CATEGORIES

Humanities mentorships allow students to develop their critical thinking, communication, writing and analytical skills, whether delving into great works or analyzing the culture and philosophies of societies throughout the ages. With the guidance of seasoned mentors in fields like art history, theology, philosophy, classics and interdisciplinary studies like comparative literature, students interested in the humanities make connections across time and societies, gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation for cultural expression.
