Minor in Humanities

The minor in Humanities addresses the needs of students who seek to complement their major field of study with a solid grounding in the intellectual traditions and cultural practices of a particular area of world culture, or who wish to deepen and broaden their knowledge and understanding of a specific historical period. In addition, study in the humanities provides an excellent opportunity for students preparing for careers in the professions that require high standards of written and oral communication skills. Given its emphasis on text-based curriculum that encourages critical thinking, shared discussion, and written and oral analysis on significant topics, the Minor in Humanities prepares undergraduates to excel as they move forward into graduate or professional schools or the work force.
