Undergraduate Degrees, Options & Minors

BA Humanities

The Humanities major enables students to explore a wide range of interrelated areas of study, while embracing broad cultural and international perspectives. Majors can choose to focus their studies in one of three areas: The Americas, Medieval and Renaissance, The World, or they can create their own contract. Students are encouraged to explore boldly, to work independently and in groups, to think critically, and to learn to communicate effectively. Humanities majors are well prepared for careers in, for example, art, business, foreign service, history, journalism, and law. The ability to develop observations and analyze interconnected ideas from several areas is an essential requirement in these professions, and employers highly value the skills of analysis, interpretation and effective communication found in Humanities majors.

This BA program is designed to include the study of seven academic Humanities disciplines: Art History, Foreign Languages, History, Literature, Music, Philosophy, and Theatre.
