Students pursuing the B.A. in Humanities will grow intellectually through a rigorous program of comparative cultural inquiry, investigating history, art, religion, thought and practice from multiple angles and across cultures and time. The degree in Humanities prepares students for life paths in international work, legal professions, civil service and government, non-profit and advocacy work, community organizing, social work, professional writing, journalism, business and marketing, teaching and education, scholarly careers, religious professions, and communications.
Students who major in Humanities will gain intellectual breadth through the required courses, while each concentration provides depth in a particular field. The concentrations enable students to focus their undergraduate studies in one of the following specializations: American Studies, Asian Studies, European Studies, Liberal Studies, Middle East Studies or Religious Studies. Each concentration provides students with a coherent area of study, but all share the aim of developing critical thinking skills, providing extensive research opportunities, and honing writing skills.
