CHASS Humanities Extension Program

The Humanities Extension Program at NC State connects North Carolina public school classroom teachers with faculty from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS) who are eager to share their expertise with students in grades K-12.

The Humanities Extension Program:

  • Creates new partnerships and builds on existing relationships between our college’s faculty and public schools across the state 
  • Fosters an understanding of and appreciation for the humanities and social sciences among students
  • Exposes high school students to potential areas of study at NC State

Visiting Humanities Scholars travel to North Carolina public schools to present on topics related to:

  • Anthropology
  • Archaeology
  • Communication
  • Culture
  • English
  • Ethics
  • History
  • International Studies
  • Languages
  • Leadership
  • Literature
  • Nonprofits
  • Philosophy
  • Politics / Public Policy
  • Psychology
  • Religious Studies
  • Social Work

­Faculty gear their presentations to the age and education level of the students. The length of programs varies and can be tailored to meet your schedules.
