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, 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.
