Humanities Major (B.A.) and Minor
Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Humanities
HUM Major: 36 semester hours
Built upon a foundation of Humanities Core courses, the Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Humanities is a collaborative program that allows students to pursue interdisciplinary studies with the rigor of a discipline but with the flexibility to accomodate individual educational goals. In addition to the Humanities Core, students take courses in a focus or concentration, plus additional courses in wide variety of participating disciplines. The B. A. in Comparative Humanities may be pursued as a single or dual major.
To declare a Major in Humanities, contact the Department of Foreign Languages and Humanities or a Humanities Advisor!
Combining 9 hours from the Humanities Core with 9 hours of related electives, the Minor in Humanities is an attractive enhancement to many B.A. degrees. The Minor is particularly well-suited for students majoring in Secondary Education, who want to prepare themselves to teach the new Arts and Humanities course which is now required for high school graduation, and for students who want to support other majors with a rich interdisciplinary experience of the arts and humanities.
When a student's Major and the HUM Minor require the same courses, three hours may be waived from the Minor upon the recommendation of the Chair of the Department of Foreign Languages and Humanities.
To declare a Minor in Humanities, contact the Department of Foreign Languages and Humanities or a Humanities Advisor.
