The Humanities Department offers courses in Art History, Drama, English, Foreign Language, History, Music Appreciation, and Philosophy. Students may major in English, History, or Humanities. The Humanities Department also offers minors in American Studies, Creative Writing, History, and Literature.

The Humanities major is broad-based. It allows students to investigate more than one area and provides an opportunity for interdisciplinary study in the Humanities fields.

All majors provide students with opportunities for Connected Learning. Students have ongoing opportunities through their coursework to connect theoretical concepts discussed in the classroom with practical application in the real world, culminating in an internship during the junior or senior year and capstone coursework in their senior year.
