Goal of the Humanities Minor
The student taking a minor in Humanities is getting a really good broad liberal arts education. Humanities is the study of the arts and cultures of the world. Our basic courses, HUM 251 Humanities, HUM 252 Humanities, and HUM 253 Humanities, offer a rich and fulfilling study of the Western (European and American) tradition. HUM 254 Non-Western Humanities and other courses consider the artistic and cultural traditions of non-Western traditions. The other more specific courses (Art History, Music History, and Literary History for instance) strongly contribute to filling out the artistic and cultural knowledge of the student who chooses Humanities as a minor.
