Whatever your medium or area of focus, at URI you will join an active community of artists, designers, composers, performers, and scholars.

Broaden Your View

When you study the humanities at URI—with majors in classical studies, English, history, philosophy, and foreign languages—you explore the power of ideas and begin to understand the world and its possibilities in a whole new way.
