Whether you want to study the thoughts, actions and values of human beings, use new technologies to make great works of art, or pursue a graduate degree in history, philosophy or law, a humanities degree from Florida Tech develops a strong background in the liberal arts with experience in writing and technology.
Gain Practical Experience
The unique environment of a technological university fosters interdisciplinary study in humanities degree students who work alongside engineers, scientists and aviators. Professors welcome undergraduate students to participate in research studies and book projects, offering dynamic opportunities for building a portfolio of scholarly inquiry before graduation.
As a senior, students complete a capstone project where they craft and present a substantial written work based on original research on a significant issue in humanities.
The humanities degree program has broad applicability. As a result of the ample allotment of electives, students may adapt the program to individual needs and interests. These diverse activities give students practical experience and the perfect preparation for graduate school and employment.
Build Professional Relationships
Beyond the classroom, humanities majors build leadership experience through internships and participation in organizations like the student newspaper, Crimson, FITV Video Productions, the College Players (performing arts), student government and over 100 other campus-wide student organizations.
Get Recruited Upon Graduation
Employers that have recruited Florida Tech humanities degree students for internships and careers include the American Museum of Natural Science, EPCOT, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Clear Channel Communications.
Earn an Advanced Degree
After receiving their humanities degree, many Florida Tech students go to master's and doctoral programs at Florida Tech or other prestigious universities, including Stanford, Johns Hopkins and Yale.
