Program Overview

The fifteen-credit-hour Humanities minor is designed for students who wish to study art, literature, music, and related fields beyond the two required World Humanities courses. It allows students to explore arts and culture from an interdisciplinary perspective. Ideally, a student who plans to minor in Humanities should complete an application for the minor during the semester in which the student is enrolled in World Humanities II (HUMN 2002). The form is available on the Humanities Program website. The student will then select courses in consultation with a Humanities advisor.
