Programs & Degrees

As a fully customizable program, the humanities major offers students an opportunity to combine the study of a language with a personalized path through the other humanities disciplines, including history, English, philosophy, the fine arts, language, law, communications, and theology. It can also include women’s studies, political science, black studies, and a host of other disciplines.

Academic flexibility is a hallmark of the program. The few requirements are very simple:

  • Four semesters in language
  • An extra fine arts course
  • Five courses in the humanities approved by the director. These five courses are selected by the student in light of his or her interests.

No two paths through the major are the same. All that is asked is that you choose your own path and pursue it with enthusiasm.
