Humanities

Major

42 semester hours, including at least 30 hours of upper-division coursework, arranged by contract in consultation with the humanities adviser. None of these 42 hours may be counted toward the core curriculum or the prescribed work for the Bachelor of Arts degree.

Students normally enter the program in the sophomore or junior year. In developing the contract, the student and the adviser define objectives, central subject areas, and a general plan of study, structured in accordance with the student’s interests. With the approval of the humanities adviser, the student chooses one of the following tracks:

  1. Track One
    1. Nine semester hours in a single field of study in the College of Liberal Arts
    2. Nine hours in one or more other fields of study in the College of Liberal Arts
    3. Nine hours in any field or fields outside the College of Liberal Arts
    4. Nine additional hours in any field or fields at the University
    5. Six hours of upper-division coursework in humanities, including Humanities 370
  2. Track Two
    1. 12 semester hours in a single field of study in the College of Liberal Arts
    2. Nine hours in a second field of study in the College of Liberal Arts
    3. 15 additional hours in any field or fields at the University
    4. Six hours of upper-division coursework in humanities, including Humanities 370

Students in the Humanities Honors Program must use Humanities 679HA and 679HB to fulfill requirements 1e or 2d.
