The B.A. in Humanities provides students with a strong pre-professional education in the liberal arts. The major offers students flexibility in preparation for entrance into law school or other graduate studies as well as careers in education, public service, social media and public relations, advertising, technical writing, museum and library work and many other areas.
Humanities students develop skills in analytical thinking, critical analysis, interpretive ability and written expression. Additionally, our cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural approach uniquely prepares graduates to engage in today’s global environment.
Students completing the B.A. in Humanities are required to complete two minors. One should be taken from the following list: Art History Minor , History Minor , Latinx and Latin American Studies Minor , Literature Minor , Law and Society Minor , Middle Eastern Studies Minor , Museum Studies Minor , Philosophy Minor , Professional Writing Minor , Women’s and Gender Studies Minor . The other may also be taken from that list or may be taken in any other area as long as the second, alternative minor does not inflate the total program hours beyond 120.
