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

The Humanities Department majors are broad based. They allow students to investigate more than one area and provide 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; coursework culminates in an internship during the junior or senior year and a capstone in the senior year.

President Alexander Responds to the Tragedy in Orlando  Thursday, June 16, 2016We the people of the United States cherish our freedoms. Whether it be the freedom to say what we want, to assemble in groups of our choosing, to follow the religions of our choice, to vote as our conscience demands, to own and carry weapons, to start new businesses and make money, and to move about as we please -- these are values we hold dear and are reluctant to compromise.
