Departament of Humanities
At Universidad Panamericana, our mission is clear: educate in the truth, in an atmosphere of respect and promotion of the human spirit. The Department of Humanities has as its aim, the integration of the scientific knowledge of each field in a framework of a humanistic philosophy and a Christian view of the world, of human life, and of society. The study of the human sciences is crucial for the university student to be able to contextualize his or her professional practice, and to understant they world in which he or she works. A university student must have, together with the skills relevant to his or her field, a broad and profound humanistic perspective.
To this end, the Department of Humanities is charged with coordinating the teaching of humanistic subjects, of recruiting and preparing teachers, of continuously revising and updating the curriculum, and of fostering the exercise of humanistic thought by means of publications, courses, seminars, and fora. Human reflection and expression should no be limited or reduced to only one dimension: the Department of Humanities is proud to serve the university communities by building bridges which connect different fields of knowledge.

- Any issue related to Humanistic subjects must be seen with the Department of Humanities, and not with the coordinator of your School.
The Department is governed by the general University Regulations and those of the Department, not by those of each School.
- According to Article 75 of the General Regulations, and Article 2 of the Department Regulations, you must comply with at least 80% attendance to be authorized to take the final exam.
- Final grades are calculated thus: 25% each for two partial exams, and 50% for the final exam.
Three of the Humanistic subjects: History of Culture, Individual and Society, and Ethics, must be taken in order. The other subjects can be taken according to your convenience.
To ask for a review of your final exam and grade, turn in the corresponding format at the Department of Humanities. Reviews are done according to the calendar on this page.
