Miami Studies: Building a New Interdisciplinary Public Humanities Program

A two-year project to create a new, interdisciplinary undergraduate program in Miami Studies.

The Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab (WPHL) at Florida International University (FIU) seeks to create a new, rigorous program in Miami Studies that is particularly attentive to the unique skills our diverse student body currently possesses or needs to sharpen to be successful in today’s job market. This project proposes the creation of a series of new courses or modules that are critically integrated to FIU’s Office of Micro-Credential Initiatives, housed within the Division of Academic & Student Affairs, to build a sustained skills-based program for our students that is centered on the study of history literature, culture, language, art, architecture, politics, and overall humanistic experience of the diverse people of the Greater Miami area, a minority-majority region whose demographics are mirrored in the student population at FIU.
