The Humanities area option allows students to meet their individual educational needs by developing a major based on courses from several departments within the Division of Humanities. The selection of courses should reflect a theme or program that is developed in consultation with the faculty advisor.
Core Requirements 12 courses (36 credits)
To satisfy the requirements for a humanities area major, students select one department in which they take five to six courses (15-18 credits) and two other departments in which they take three to four courses (9-12 credits) each for a minimum total of 36 credits. An example program of study for a student who chose Communication as the major department and English Literature and History of Art & Architecture as the minor departments is shown below.
After earning 90 credits, all Humanities Area majors must take one of the capstone courses offered in the major area of concentration or one of the minor areas to fulfill the capstone class requirement.
