The Humanities & Arts program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute combines the humanities and arts with science to provide a unique balance in studies to help students understand that science and technology are means to a greater end.


Key Features

With the support of a talented and dedicated faculty, as well as access to several world-class local cultural institutions for project work, seminars, and performances, students in the Humanities & Arts program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute will be equipped with the knowledge and understanding of human behavior and critical thinking skills needed to succeed in their careers and in life.

While many students choose WPI because of the chance to explore their interests through the 2-unit HUA requirement, students may also major or minor in the humanities and arts or pursue a double major in combination with a science, engineering, or management program.

Programme Structure

  • The Humanities & Arts degree gives you the best of both worlds. In this immersive program, you’ll study human cultural achievements to develop broad, universal skills in research, analysis, writing, or performance. While complementing the technological side of your WPI education, these skills and experiences will also enrich your life and enhance your career. When you first arrive, a faculty advisor will work with you to design your own personalized course of study.
