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.
