In connection with the Emerging Areas in the Humanities Research Groups, IPRH will be offering undergraduate certificates.
In January 2015, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded a grant of $2,050,000 to IPRH to support the development of research groups in three emerging areas in the humanities: Bio-Humanities, Environmental Humanities, and Legal Humanities. These complex areas of inquiry require applications of historical, literary, and visual thinking to advance knowledge across cultures and time. These groups will create new curricular opportunities for undergraduates on the Illinois campus to engage in these areas of the humanities inquiry through the creation of undergraduate certificate programs.
The Bio-Humanities sertificate program is still currently in development. Please check back for more information about this certifate and future Environmental and Legal Humanities certificates.
