The Bachelor of Arts in Humanities is for the person who is creative, introspective, and constantly curious and asking questions — but is OK with not finding an answer set in stone.
This degree allows you to explore one or more subject areas, with endless possibilities, including philosophy, foreign language, music, theatre, English, and communication art.
You’ll choose from one of four concentration areas: Perspectives in Humanities, which focuses on critical thinking, writing, and communication skills; Ethnic and Gender studies, exploring ways in which race and gender are central to the understanding of communities and individuals; Performing Arts, for those who want to study theatre or music with an emphasis on performance; and Thematic Cluster, a multidisciplinary program that allows the student to create a specialized concentration around a specific theme.
A Humanities major prepares you for many careers, because of its emphasis on critical thinking, problem solving, and writing skills, which are skills sought by many employers. It also provides excellent preparation for graduate school.
