Designed for students who are interested in interdisciplinary studies, the Humanities major features Concentrations in American Studies, East Asian Studies, European Studies, Liberal Arts, Middle East Studies, and Religious Studies. The Concentrations require 40-45 units.
A special feature of the major is its flexibility. While the concentrations represent coherent programs, they also offer considerable choice within the numerous electives that allow students to develop individual programs of study to suit their own interests and needs.
Devised to provide students with a liberal education through heightened awareness, broad knowledge, and critical thinking, the Humanities major prepares students for many professional programs and occupations, such as law, librarianship, social work, communications, teaching, public service and public relations.
