Humanities

The Humanities major provides students with a broad based program that explores the role of human imagination, intellect and expression in human history, cultural development, and social and personal relations. Major requirements therefore span the areas of Art History, Communication, English, History, Music, Philosophy, and Languages. Through major electives, students focus on areas of interest. During the junior or senior year, students have the opportunity to apply course-work to a professional experience in an internship. Students interested in the Humanities with Elementary Education Concentration should consult the Catalog description to ensure meeting requirements for licensure. Graduates receive a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Humanities Department.
