Mission Statement: the Humanities Program develops students’ understanding of how cultural values are expressed in art, music, philosophy, and literature and enhances their verbal and analytical skills.
Study of the humanities is distinguished by an interest in the human aspect of all knowledge. The humanities are therefore broad in nature and a variety of individual programs can be designed for students who want a non-vocational, liberal arts background.
Each student majoring in humanities is expected to give careful attention to the relationships among the courses chosen for major and supporting purposes and he or she should consult with the program coordinator frequently regarding the most effective means for achieving a synthesis.
The following distribution requirements are expected to meet the needs of most students; other patterns may be developed with approval of the program coordinator. In addition to the courses listed below, individual study of the classical languages, Greek and Latin, may be arranged.
The Humanities program offers two minors—a 20 credit minor in Humanities proper and 25 credit minor in Religious Studies.
