Humanities (BA)

Department Website

Program Description

The Bachelor of Arts in Humanities provides a strong pre-professional education in the liberal arts. Students acquire the writing, critical thinking, aesthetic, and analytical abilities required to pursue a graduate degree, or to advance in their career. The broad-based humanities curriculum encourages them to think in the cross-cultural and cross- disciplinary way needed to succeed in today's increasingly globalized business, cultural, and communication environments. Concentrations in art history, creative writing, and literature are available. Courses introduce students to the concepts, practices, methods, and theories specific to their field of concentration.
