The humanities include but are not limited to the study of history, modern and classical language, literature, law, philosophy, comparative religion, ethics, and the history, criticism and theory of the arts. Anthropology, archeology and political science are also considered part of the humanities, as are interdisciplinary areas, such as Pacific studies, CHamoru studies, Micronesian studies, Asian studies, American studies, women and gender studies, ethnic studies, and the study of folklore and folk life. Humanities projects may also apply humanities perspectives to current political, social or economic concerns and issues.
