Ferris graduates interpret and explain cultural works in the context of experiences and histories of their own culture or that of others.
People of all cultures have histories and traditions that shape who they are and have religions and philosophies that bring meaning to their world. These ideas are articulated through languages and the arts. Interpreting and appreciating the diversity of human cultural expression is critical for living in an increasingly globalized world.
