Humanities (Minor)

humanities minor

Add a breadth of perspective to your degree with an understanding of the human condition through art, music, history, literature and more

The humanities minor is an interdisciplinary program where students can combine humanities courses and courses from other disciplines that form a multidisciplinary theme or topic. The minor in humanities is an excellent way to add breadth of perspective to specialized study in particular disciplines. Many professions encourage students to develop skills and knowledge outside their area of professional interest. The humanities minor can meet this objective and make college education a more enlightening and rewarding experience. Students selecting a minor in humanities should, in consultation with a faculty advisor in humanities, identify a general theme or topic for the minor.
