Bede Program in Arts and Humanities

DrPatrickWadden

Bede Program in Arts and Humanities, Program Director, Dr. Patrick Wadden

bedeBede Scholars value and enjoy the study of the arts and humanities as a means of understanding themselves and their place in the world. They are inquisitive about the origins and development of their culture, and eager to engage with others, past and present. They enrich their own lives, and those of their families and friends, through reading, writing, and other means of cultural expression. They will be considering majoring in History, English, or Theology, and may aspire to attend graduate school or to pursuing careers as authors, journalists, teachers, guides, or curators.

These experiences will augment and enhance their understanding of the past and the present, and will help students develop their skills as critical and independent thinkers. They will also help Bede Scholars form bonds of friendship and create lasting relationships that will continue to sustain and inspire them throughout their lives.
