A Humanities degree allows the student flexibility in creating a curriculum linked to academic and career interests. Students may pursue a concentration track, with a focus in Music, or an interdisciplinary track, designing their own major in the Humanities.
The Interdisciplinary Humanities Track
The interdisciplinary track within the Humanities degree is designed for students with a particular educational and/or career goal for which a specific major is not offered. For example,
- Are you interested in Law School, and/or a career in public life, with a Humanities background? Create a personalized curriculum combining courses in Communication Studies, Philosophy, and History (adding, perhaps, a minor in Political Science or International Studies).
- Do you want to write and illustrate bilingual children's books? Take courses in Creative Writing, Children's Literature, Spanish, and Fine Arts. Add a minor in Entrepreneurship, and you're on your way.
To speak with a faculty advisor about other possible interdisciplinary combinations, contact the Chair of the Department of Arts and Culture. Anyone simply wanting a broad-based Humanities education, without a specific focus, should pursue the Bachelor of General Studies.
