Humanities Education plays an important role in cultivating students’ abilities and preparing qualified citizens, and engaging learning experiences help students learn better. However, the nuances between different types of Humanities Courses lack attention. This study employed a comparative case study approach to gain more understanding of this issue. The researcher conducted in-depth interviews with three undergraduate students, each from a unique course in the Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (DAMES) at a renowned university, and conducted the narrative analysis. Results include: 1) Students expected different learning outcomes from different types of humanities courses; 2) The voice of students in course design, cultural context woven into the course content, communications between the instructors and the students, and a supportive learning environment were crucial for an engaging class; 3) It’s important to maintain communications between instructors and students to share potential issues like the difficulty level and the assignment workload.
