Humanities is a liberal arts major with a focus on courses from three humanities departments. You customize this major to meet your interests and personal and career goals. Choose from a variety of courses with a concentration in three areas such as the following: classics, communication, English literature, English writing, history of art and architecture, philosophy, or theatre arts.
A minimum total of 120 credits is required for the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in humanities. Of this total, students must take a minimum of 36 credits (approximately 12 courses) according to the specifications at the right. The remaining credits required for the degree are outlined in the Requirements for the Bachelor’s Degree information sheet.
The College of General Studies and the School of Education have collaborated on a curriculum under the humanities major that incorporates all of the prerequisite course work needed for admission into the certificate program in comprehensive English education. This option may be used by students interested in the professional year of the Master of Arts in teaching programs offered in the School of Education. Completion of the prerequisites for the School of Education does not guarantee acceptance to their programs.
