After viewing the video "Lecture: What Are the Humanities?" and completing the required reading, "Defining the Humanities," take this brief Knowledge-check Quiz. This quiz consists of one brief essay question. It is required and it will be graded. Writing it gives you a chance to consider which definitions of "the humanities" make the most sense to you and to practice the kind of short-essay responses you'll be asked to submit in later quizzes.

Before beginning this quiz, reflect on the various definitions you have heard and read so far. Be prepared to write, in 2- to 4-sentences, a definition of the humanities that has meaning for you.

Only registered, enrolled users can take graded quizzes
