Humanities Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs


The Humanities Minor cultivates humanistic exploration through historically grounded texts and traditions. It teaches critical engagement with society’s most pressing issues by developing a human-oriented perspective in which creativity and critical, theoretical thinking frame ethical being in the world.

These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic program, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
