Humanities, Minor

Requirements

The discipline of humanities is the study of human intellectual and artistic creativity and what the resulting artistic forms reveal about the human experience. This field of study draws on other disciplines such as history, fine arts, literature, intellectual history, music, foreign languages, theology, and philosophy to see how the several artistic forms communicate and work together to give an in-depth record of the meaning of human life in the past and present. The discipline also emphasizes the relationship between the arts, culture, and society. A background in humanities is helpful in preparing for employment in education, business, government, civil and foreign service, tourism, and in preparation for graduate studies.
