This represents a change from the printed 2014-2015 University Catalog: In junior-fall, Introduction to the Humanities is HUM 3900, not HUM 1000; the total credits required are 122.

Bachelor of Arts in Humanities

The Bachelor of Arts degree program in humanities is an interdisciplinary program of liberal studies with an emphasis on literature, history, philosophy and the fine arts. As a study of the thoughts, actions and values of human beings, along with a comprehensive background in science, mathematics and computers, the humanities major has broad applicability. As a result of the ample allotment of electives, humanities majors may adapt the program to individual needs and interests. The humanities major prepares graduates for a wide variety of careers, including teaching, law, government service, the military and editing. Students wishing to pursue graduate study will be prepared to enter programs in their respective areas of concentration, such as history, literature, philosophy or law.
