The Humanities Department offers courses in art history, English, world languages, history, music, performance, and philosophy. Students may major in English, Global Engagement, or History. The Humanities Department also offers minors in American Studies, Creative Writing, History, Literature, Performing Arts, and Spanish Language Studies.

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; coursework culminates in an internship during the junior or senior year and a capstone in the senior year.
