Get Involved in the Humanities Extension Program!

The Humanities Extension Program at NC State University connects North Carolina public school classroom teachers with faculty from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences 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 faculty and public schools across the state. It fosters an understanding of and appreciation for the humanities and social sciences among students and exposes students across the state to potential areas of study at NC State. The faculty who participate in this program consistently enjoy the experience and request to be matched again in the future.
