Humanities Minor


To function in an increasingly complex world, students need to be able to move comfortably among disciplines and their distinct approaches to the variety of human experiences and human conditions.

The Minor in Humanities is designed to provide students with interdisciplinary study within the humanities while enabling them to concentrate their upper-division coursework in the Minor on a specific theme. 

In combination with their major, this program of study provides a solid foundation for students interested in various careers, from retail to education, law and medicine.
