Literature and History majors from Hellenic College Holy Cross develop an appreciation of pivotal moments in history and their impact on cultures worldwide. This interdisciplinary program showcases the dynamic relationship between these two vitally important fields of study. 


Students perform research in the humanities while learning how to shape their own research projects, culminating in senior theses. Both the core and elective courses prepare students for fields requiring analytic thought and effective communication, including education, media, history, law, journalism, and public policy.

The Literature and History program at the Hellenic College Holy Cross produces critical thinkers with well-developed reading skills, and  perfects essential communication skills. More importantly, it illuminates human nature on a personal and grand scale.

Each course in the literature program allows students to absorb different points of view. To read literature is to read about the thoughts, emotions, concerns, and beliefs of other human beings.
