Undergraduate Program

The College of Humanities embraces the traditional aims of a liberal education: a critical understanding of diverse cultures as expressed in their literature, art, ideas, and values. The selection of a program depends on the student’s interest and career plans.

The University’s program in general education combines with a major in any of the disciplines in the humanities to prepare a student for a life informed by critical skills and a broadly based perspective on human thought and values, as well as for a wide variety of career opportunities.

Graduation Requirements

Every prospective graduate of the College of Humanities is required to consult with a departmental undergraduate advisor at least once to declare his or her major, once during the first semester of the senior year, and at other times at the discretion of the major department.

Graduate Programs

See individual department listings in the Courses section of this catalog for information about graduate offerings.
