Guide to the Humanities - Selected Resources

Welcome to Your Guide to the Humanities!

Welcome to the humanities guide! Use the side tabs to navigate based on your major. Each page has information about career paths, major books and journals in your discipline, key databases you will use for research, and citation style guides. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact your professor or one of the librarians! At Maryville College, we are here to help you learn.

What are the humanities?

In the Humanities Division, we ask the big questions. What is the nature of ultimate reality? What is the meaning of human existence? What is our role in the world? How have other people past and present addressed these questions? Why and why did things happen the way they did? Could history have taken a different course? Can things be different in the future? At Maryville College, the Humanities include:

  • History

  • Philosophy

  • Religion
