Minor in Humanities

Students may seek either an academic major or minor in humanities.

The humanities minor complements the skills the student gains in his or her major discipline by providing an integrated curriculum for enrichment and exploration of culture and ideas, as well as a broad perspective on human behavior, thought, and values across traditional disciplines.

Requirements for the Minor

A minor in humanities requires the completion of 15 credits of coursework in humanities and related disciplines. Courses allowable for the major apply.

Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g., major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor. At least 9 credits must be earned in upper-level humanities-related courses (numbered 300 or above). Prerequisites apply for all courses.
