Offered as a minor

The minor in Humanities presents students an opportunity to explore themes in the Humanities through advanced and interdisciplinary courses. Combining advanced courses offered by the Humanities departments (Classics, English, Fine Arts, History, Modern Languages, Philosophy, and Theology) with interdisciplinary, team-taught classes both within the humanities and between the humanities and social and natural sciences, the minor promotes in-depth study of defined themes contextualized within larger questions of human values and experience that are central to the Liberal Arts mission of the college. Relying in large measure upon syntheses of disciplines and pedagogical approaches, the Humanities minor offers an integrated approach to learning that can appeal to all students who wish to supplement their chosen major with a program that broadens their thinking about what it means to be human and challenges them to explore important questions within an active seminar environment.
